Rebirth Day


I've decided that the first sunny spring day (and I use that term loosely in these parts) that has a crystal blue sky, shall be deemed "Rebirth Day."  Find the nearest stream, and soak in its beauty for several minutes.  Best therapy in the world.

The above video, take this morning (April 25), is of the stream off Taconic Lake Road by the Taconic Lake Association pillars.  Its waters derive from rainwater and springs feeding Taconic Lake.  It leaves the north end of the lake and winds its way down to Taconic Lake Road.  Next, it weaves back and forth down Toad Point Hill, crossing Route 22 in Petersburgh, where it then heads north via the Little Hossic River until it joins up with the Hoosic River and evenutally makes its way to the Hudson River.  From there it works its way down to, and past, the "Big Apple" before entering the Atlantic.

Spring is Springing!

Spring's cancellation has been cancelled.

The woodpeckers pecketh,
The lake thaweth,
Spring is springing!
