    Here in Alaska, there are very definite signs of Spring... the sudden appearance of:

    1) muddy pawprints everywhere

    2) new rock chips in your windshield

    3) bikers in those yummy leather chaps

    4) campers/motorhomes on the highways

    5) "outside" license plates

    and last but not least ...
    6) "CHEEP CHEEP CHEEP!" sounds every time you go to the feed store or walk past your incubator [​IMG]

    What's a sure sign that Spring is in the air in your part of the world? [​IMG]

    For me its spring when you can hear the peepers in the country. I love the sound of all the frogs. Its such a relaxing sound. There are many other signs of spring but I like that part the most.[​IMG]

    Its spring when I start wearing flip-flops (if you ask my friends when its spring by that they'll say "What winter? Its always spring in Kurts mind").

    When you are done with chores and it's still light outside.

    you know spring has arrived in Hawaii:

    when all the whales start migrating to the islands
    swells start coming in from the south
    the rainbows are more plentiful throughout the day
    the stores are wiped out of seeds to start your garden
    you see plenty more wild chicks running around with their mamma
    the cattle moves down the slopes to lower fields for grazing
    and the airlines start running alot of specials out of Hawaii to other destinations.
