Hints of spring

Published March 2, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

I think I heard that spring is just three weeks away. Evidence in the garden proves that sun and rain have provided vital essentials as regional flora comes to life. Not so much sun, but plenty of rain. Skagit County government’s Facebook page reports that we had 5.78 inches or rain in February, as compares to a 2.84-inch average! (Maybe that “the other side of the slough. Anacortes weather is always brighter!)

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
