OK, so not cold in comparison to some of the temps I ran in this winter, but cold for April 30. 35 degrees and a frosty windshield as I headed over to the Commons this morning. But it was good to see bright blue skies and sunshine after all the dreary rainy weather we've had over the past day and a half. One of the local news stations is reporting 6 inches of rain here in Brunswick! Now that is a lot of water. Needless to say, things were a bit muddy and wet in the Commons, with the few streams to be crossed overflowing. But it was good to get out. To get in the six miles on my schedule, I did a field loop and then the out-and-back in the Commons. A nice mellow run.
Flora and fauna report: Things are starting to look green, and most of the plants in my garden are emerging from under the mulch. Saw two goldfinch in the Commons, as well as a male cardinal. Also have a few Robins enjoying the "lake" out behind our condo, as well as a Hermit Thrush! Cool.
