Breakup came early and easy this year and on May tenth the lake is free of ice for three days now and the loons, goldeneyes and swallows are busy mating nesting and feeding on the bounty of Bear Lake.
The temperature is 65 degrees and no snow is left in our yard.  Winter was little more than an interlude between fall and spring this year.  This morning the sun was shining in the north windows of the house will will for the next several weeks as we bath in nearly endless daylight that we don't have the energy to use.
