How do you mark the coming of spring? Do you scalp and fertilize your lawn? Plant your garden? Go boating?

Here, we hold a week-long carnival and central to the event are mushing contests for every age. We certainly can’t prepare lawns that still lie under 20 inches of snow. We can’t plant a garden because temperatures are still way below freezing at night. And we can’t boat on a frozen river.

But we can sled on it! Many thanks to Igor Stravinsky for the title.

  1. I mark the coming of Spring with Sinusitus and Hayfever. LOL! I won’t mind being there for Spring and Summer. Lovely views Dave. 😀
