The forecast for the next few days is: Unseasonably warm, and rain. Supposed to be near 60 deg F. That should get rid of the rest of the ice on the lakes. Can't come soon enough for me.
The above picture is a view of my backyard. It will change soon though. The woods is owned by a builder, and it is for sale - only after he builds a house on it. Urban sprawl is a huge problem, and this neighbor of mine is perpetuating the problem by building a house first, and then looking for a buyer.
Oh well, everything changes - seasons, views, neighbors.
