Our winter in the Southern Tier of upstate New York has been up and down, up and down.
We had a record high yesterday - 69 F officially (20.5C), breaking the old record of 61 (16C).
Over the weekend, ice broke up on the Susquehanna River in Binghamton, New York.
Today, it was gone, completely, along with all our snow.
But that is all a memory now. Winter, ice and snow are expected back. The temperature is 34 F (1C). It will be snowing soon.
Yet, the tree endures, and awaits the secret signal that will tell it to awaken, to bloom, and to grow leaves once again.
I can't wait.
