High 60’s today, with no sun. Records were broken all over the state.
I took a walk up to Silver Lake. It’s still frozen as expected but that didn’t stop beavers from getting into spring mode. All those smaller trees are gone, to build a dam I assume, but I guess the bigger one was just a little too heavy. I would have liked to be there to see them trying to pull it in.
In spite of the several days of warm weather, a man went on and through the ice on Sherburne Pond today. A warden on patrol saw him but went through the ice trying to get to him. The guy drowned but the warden, who was wearing flotation gear, was able to get back to shore though they said it took him nearly 15 minutes. Thankfully it wasn’t a double tragedy. We’ll never know what that guy was thinking. He was a fisherman but his gear was still in his truck. Mike
