SpringComingSpring is Coming!

Last year on March 21st 2012 the river was cold and the water very syrup like. It was t-shirt weather and time to try out the row boat. Boat builder Mike Lapp tries out his cosign wherry and goes into the last of the pack ice in front of the Stormont Yacht Club. The migratory birds were back, the sun was shining and it was nice to work up a sweat. Let’s hope our spring this year comes as early and is as warm.
