It continues to feel like January here in upstate New York. It has been a long time since I remember it being so cold so late. All of our friends at the Outdoor Hour are moving on with the spring series and we seem to be stuck in winter. We bundled up to brave the 31 degree weather and headed out this morning to search for any signs of spring. Armed with our clipboard and scavenger hunt list we were pleasantly surprised by what we found.
"I" decided he needed his rake to unearth spring under the snow. His brother and sister looked on to see if he was right. We didn't need to do any digging to see bits of green.

Some of our other finds this morning included nests,
and ferns from last year. There are no signs of fiddlehead yet.
The boys found tracks from moles or voles.
Here are the final results.
