I've been reading and hearing about Spring Creep lately. Which sounds funny but simply means spring is coming earlier and earlier in recent years. Evidence is earlier breakup of ice and even Robins being spotted. The Duluth Shipping canal is all chunks of ice blown in by the wind. In Grand Marais on the cam I see somebody has their boat in tow with thoughts of fishing. All of this the first week of March. The ice road opened briefly in Bayfield Wisconsin but now is closed due to the warmer weather. The shipping season can't be far away now.
