With warmer days yesterday and today we see a few more people outside. Mothers pushing baby strollers, carpenters on roofs, neighbors trimming bushes or neatening up their yards. The weather is still not right for painting fences and such -- forecasters are calling for cold temperatures again later in the week -- but the daffodils are in bloom.
So we'll just continue enjoying the peace and quiet of an island winter.
