            Spring officially starts March 19th but that is what we say. I prefer to let nature tell me when it arrives and this past week she has been telling me that it's already here. I know we recently had a nasty storm and we will probably have another, but that is part of spring.

            When going to college in the Adirondacks I spent my spare time trapping. While doing so I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to trap an animal that wasn't found in the rest of the state.
