Some Sure Signs of Spring For Those Looking for the Transition from the Recent Ice Age We haven't had much of a transition this year from winter to spring. The past few weeks we've been dealing with snow, way below normal temperatures and rising flood waters. Many were wondering if maybe we had just slipped back into the Ice Age. Speaking of which, I thought I saw a Woolly Mammoth in the distance, crossing a field to the east of my place a couple weeks back. It was early morning and I hadn't put on my glasses, which I'm slowly getting accustomed to, so when I did, I realized it was a pickup going down the road a mile east of the place. I still think there might be one out there somewhere. Point is, as we began to wander into the middle of May we really needed something to give us a sign that there really was a spring somewhere. A few of the believers began purchasing seed and fertilizer and the like, just in case.

Apparently some of the farmers had chipped their tractors out of the ice and were going to get going, no matter what.
