It's just not very funny

Old man winter is playing an April Fool’s Day joke on hawkwatchers today.

I awake to snow everywhere, and I sort of suspect today won’t be the best spring migration day of the season.

I don’t think I’ll bother trying to go to Allegheny Front or Tussey Mtn.

So what’s happening up at Derby Hill and Braddock Bay? It’s a long drive but the weekend is ahead. Maybe it’s worth an emergency drive north. My goodness, they are getting rain. Nope, no hawkwatching there, either.

Well, is a cheap flight to Duluth available? Oops. It doesn’t matter if there is. It’s snowing there, too.

Let’s just hope this April Fool’s joke is Old Man Winter’s last hurrah for this year, so that we can all get back to more important things—like counting hawks!

  1. Ha ha ha! And today, April 4th, here in central NH that Old Man Winter did it again! Snow most of today, with predictions of a warming trend peaking in the 50s, toNIGHT!!!! Then, by tomorrow evening we'll be back in the 'fridge. Thank you, La Nina! By this time we usually see Bluebirds brooding. Hawks? Where?!!!
