Bellingham’s Early Spring Arrives

Well, it’s that time of year again. Time to celebrate the arrival of spring, which in Bellingham happens, as I wrote last year, surprisingly early.

Though it was only a week or so ago when we had subzero temperatures and snow, for the past few days we’ve had lovely sunshine and temperatures in the low to mid 50s.

I just took the photo you see here, of those oh so welcome crocus that prop up in our yard year after year, signaling that Mother Nature’s annual reset button has been pushed. It is something I revel in.

At the same time, I’m not a winter hater, and I am hoping to get up to Mt. Baker to ski a few more times before the end of the season.

It’s the best of both worlds, right now, in Bellingham. Hooray!

  1. Nice to see a blog about Bellingham. I used to go through there at lot in the late 70’s. Had a friend ran a 2nd hand store called The Funky Junk, probably not there anymore. 🙂

    1. Hi toemailer! Your blog is AWESOME. What a great idea!

      I’m sure you wouldn’t recognize Bellingham anymore, if you haven’t been here since the late 70s. And yet, I don’t mean that in an overly negative way.

      Yes, some of the innocence of the small town this used to be has been lost, but not all of it. It has grown substantially, of course, but I’ve seen growth handled WAY worse. AND, as I write about here occasionally, we have a great core of people committed to maintaining a sustainable, local community, which is nice.

      Anyway, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!
