Tuesday, February 17, 2009

From this morning (the server was down): Sunny, blue sky, some haze at the horizon with clouds gathering to the south. The lake like bluish milk-glass flecked with meringue, the ice still too uneven for skating. Two crows flying over the southern shore; a chickadee sunning in a tree on the western shore; more birds heard but not seen in the stark trees. A solitary white birch next to the path is heavy with buds almost unfurling. No fishermen on the lake; many walkers and joggers around it. A double procession of planes in both landing paths, some louder than others. Thirty mallards paddling in the creek.
