Its hard to believe that spring officially begins March 25. Already by the beginning of March many lowland flowers are beginning to bloom. Eagles are seen soaring above Bainbridge harbor during my morning walks to the ferry. Out-of-town visitors, a sure sign of tourist season beginning, are everywhere.
It's been a tad dry this spring. The long range forecast calls for a warmer and drier than normal summer. Could the word "drought" be heard throughout the normally rainy Northwest?
Whether you're attending one the area's many festivals or visiting one of the surrounding national parks, get out there an enjoy this weather. Remember you only have until Sept 17th before it really start raining again.
