Trying to Find Spring

The meteorologists have taken to calling April in Minnesota persistent winter. I took a walk along the river on Sunday afternoon trying to find any signs of spring.

The sun was out and a rather stiff west wind was blowing. There were many gulls about -- they migrate through here rather than spend the warm season here. I think they were simply having fun gliding the wind.

The one above is obviously resting.

It was a good day, too, for flying a kite.

I saw remains of snow everywhere.

Now today, Tuesday, it's just about all gone. However, as I'm writing the rain is just beginning -- a start of a forecasted two day winter snow storm. Ugh!
