Remembering Summer


Damn, it seems like a long time ago, when the trees had leaves and rivers ran free. It seems as if this winter will never end, and that spring will never show up to release us, and our waters, from forced hibernation.


I find myself looking forward to dripping icicles, cold sunshine and steam rising off the asphalt. As much as I'd love to rush headlong into summer, I know I must first endure spring and all its false promises and its frequent reminders of the Rocky Mountain winter.


But if I can just get through it, to those long, lush days when socks are, more or less, optional, I think I'll be all right. For now, reminders in pixels will have to suffice. Do me a favor. Cheer summer on with me... maybe, if we all root for it, it'll come just a little faster.

  4. The river through town is softening up some. That may be a good sign. Then again, this is Idaho! You just never know.

  5. I'll be happy with winter if it will just get above zero again. Open water where art thou?
