Walking in the Light

February was an unseasonably mild and dry month here on the coast. I know it’s not necessarily a good thing for a rain forest eco-system, and it could be a symptom of the changing climate, but it’s hard to be upset about it when it feels like April and the sun is shining. I can’t remember a winter here when we’ve had so much sunshine, and it is reflected in people’s moods for sure (the west coast and it’s grey winters are notorious for causing seasonal moodiness).

Winter isn’t over and we are all hesitant to count it out before April as March can be a fickle month. But February was one for the books.

    our february was a typical minnesota february, but our march is shaping up like your february. and like you i’m wondering what the consequences will be down the road (they’re already saying we’re going to have more forest fires this spring than normal) but it’s hard to worry when the sun is shining and it’s reached 70 deg F in minnesota, in march!

    • Wow!! I hear it’s the warmest winter on record in Canada.
