Spring Stalled

As is often the case in GriggsDakota, there has been a cooling trend. 
Swimming in the lake is pleasant for Canada geese, but this week our nighttime temperatures are the coldest in over a month. There are icy spots in the morning.
There were snow flakes in the air before the clouds broke and we enjoyed a bit of chilly sunshine. 
Trees, that seemed so full of promise as the buds swelled early this year, have sensibly slowed their arrival. Their bare branches sway as the wind roars through.
We are again hauling wood to the fire. 
 Warm Spring days are fickle in GriggsDakota.
 
The sun does not always bring warmth.
The field work is starting slowly. 
We wait to fly.
