We have had 1.72 inches of rain since yesterday early morning. We are up to 2.18 inches of rain for the month here in Otsego. At 5:30 am we have a warm 60° and light rain.
We have turned the corner into a more springlike pattern, the grass is green, the trees are leafing, the birds are singing – doesn’t get much better than that.
I noticed a new neighbor in our wildlife menagerie, a big fat woodchuck. He is living under a fallen tree in the woods next to my property. My neighbor down the road was cleaning out his woodpile the other day and found three woodchuck cubs, he turned them over to the Kalamazoo Nature Center. They are nature’s bulldozers and can dig rather large dens to live in.
We should have a couple of nice days to enjoy with clearing today and partly sunny skies tomorrow and temps around 70° both days before the rain moves back in for tomorrow night.
