Signs of spring (when it still feels like winter)

Written by: Leslie Bridgers

You may not have had time to pick your head up from the snow pile you were shoveling to realize that spring started Monday. But despite the white stuff and sub-freezing nights, there are signs all around us that the time of year is changing. One of the first harbingers of spring was the opening of Red’s Dairy Freeze in South Portland at the beginning of the month, though it may have been premature, considering the purveyors of sought-after soft-serve had to shut down for a day thanks to a snowstorm. Over the next few weeks, keep a lookout for these indications that warmer weather’s coming – even if it doesn’t feel like it.
