Here in Western NY spring weather seems to be very elusive to say the least. The month of March doesn't want to let go of it's icy grip! While it was a bit warmer today, the weather man says it's supposed to snow tomorrow. But we can still be hopeful because of other signs of spring. For example, Thursday evening, my ghostwriter went out the front door, hoping there might be a nice sunset. To her great surprise, an entire flock of turkey vultures drifted by!
My ghostwriter remembers a time when a big turkey vulture, or any type of large hawk or eagle was an extremely rare sight. Seeing a lot of them gliding effortlessly in the air was amazing!
The grackles were not very happy about them, though. They flew to the treetops screeching like idiots! But those vultures couldn't be bothered with a bunch of silly grackles. They eat road kill, and stuff like that. They are the clean-up crew of nature.
Hey! It's starting to rain!
And the wind is blowing like crazy.
Over the sinister whirring of the wind through the still bare trees, I hear another sound that means spring is arriving: frogs singing! Well, I hope those little spring peepers don't get their buns frozen off tomorrow if it snows!
