Spring is here, even if she is at times a little bit chilly. Log hauling was brought to a standstill by the thaw. In some places the water is three feet deep in the roads. Buds on pussywillows have even been found by genial Tom O'Connor of the Adirondack Hotel (now the location of Rite Aid). Long sprouts are starting to venture forth from the potatoes stored in his cellar. Many animals are suffering from cases of the epizootic.
Our sleighing is about over and the farmers are preparing for sugar making. George Jenks of Chestertown tapped 75 trees on March 5, 1910 on Landon Hill. It is indeed rather early in the year but by the next day, some of his buckets were nearly full.
The snow has settled rapidly under the warm sunshine of the past few spring-like days. A robin was seen March 4 at The Glen and one was also seen by Mrs. A.W. Baker in North Thurman.
