First full day of spring yesterday and it snowed, sleeted, and rained most of the day with a 1- to 2-inch accumulation of snow on the ground, but not the roads.
The weather guys promised more of the same tomorrow.

Saw my first groundhog of the year today (see photo) during my daily walk around the business park here in Wallingford where I work.
Also, the daily Waterbury rag reported yesterday that black bear #49 is out and about in Wolcott, so I took in my bird feeder and suet cage last night to avoid any close encounters between #49 and The Pies.
By the way, there still is some snow in my yard.

I measured 70 inches of snow this winter on Compounce Mountain. The last of the snow on the roof of the house disappeared on Monday, March 7, but the yard is still full of snow. There are many bare spots in the yard, but there are also many places where the snow is still one to three feet deep!
Meanwhile, skunk cabbage shoots have broken through the ground in spots where there is no snow.

As is my wont, I bumped the coffee cup and it began a descent towards my Mac Pro. I quickly intercepted its fall and changed its trajectory but in the process, I karate-chopped the 16-Gbyte USB flash drive inserted in my Mac and broke it.
I ordered a replacement on Wednesday from Amazon. I was amazed to find it in my mailbox on Thursday.
Kudos to Amazon and USPS.
