As I suspected it might, the first day of Spring turned out to be a sunny, blue-sky day and the village was literally bustling with activity. Snow machines and four wheelers zipped and darted all around, their riders obviously unbothered by a windchill in the negative forties.
And snow removal, which happens year-round to some extent, gets a huge boost this time of year. Hauling tons and tons of snow from point A to point B is a fairly big job that requires fairly big machinery.
Two slightly out-of-focus ravens supervised today's progress from a distance...
...while two little guys busied themselves with big machinery of their own.
Yep, it's finally Spring!
