It may be a little hard to believe with 8 inches of snow and the worst roads we have seen all winter to start the week, and more snow in the forecast for the next few days, but the signs are clear that spring is on the way!
In the last couple of days we have seen the beginnings of green grass, rivers getting muddy and water running high. All good signs that spring is not far away. However, we have not yet heard that official song that welcomes spring in Wyoming.
The meadowlark is the state bird of Wyoming, and it is his first song of the year that marks the official beginning of spring. Regardless of what the groundhog says each year, it is actually the meadowlark that tells us Wyomingites that we have made it through another winter. We are still waiting for his song, but be encouraged that we have at least seen him flying around the neighborhood! Spring is near!!
