Anchorage, Alaska, remains covered in two or three feet of snow these days, with fresh buckets-full coming down at this very moment. But don’t be fooled. Springtime is on its way and the first Canada geese will be showing up here in about four weeks. Trust them. They’ve returned to this part of the world early each April for eons.
The new arrivals pictured here on a previous April day are standing on the ice of a local pond. Some appear rightly weary, while others are throwing their heads back in apparent celebration — they actually made it!
With spring so close, today’s snow make little difference. The rest of us will make it, too.
