Time of incident: 3:58 AM
Location of incident Cypress St., Throop
Nature of incident: the arrival of spring
If you're a regular blog reader, you know I write about it every year, but this has to be the earliest.
Skunks are a better harbinger of spring than robins. Skunks get active in the spring, looking for food and love, and not necessarily in that order.
I was out doing some things early Friday morning when I observed that skunk. Unfortunately, the skunk was in a contest with a car (not mine) and the skunk lost. Road kill is never appealing, especially when you can smell it three towns away. However, a slight smile crossed my mouth. Spring is here.
It could be that we just have a rogue skunk here. We're currently experiencing the coldest weather of the season. We'll see what the ground hog has to say February 2.
