On Friday, we saw our first Wood Ducks of spring in 60 degree weather at Columbus Park. Ethan photographed them with his new camera:

Then, last night, a wave of thunderstorms swept through, and temperatures dropped. It will be a cool and rainy weekend.

I guess spring is a journey, not a destination. You take three steps forward, then the next storm system pushes you two steps back.
