Has Spring Sprung Already in the Lehigh Valley? But It's Only January!

The Lehigh Valley is currently going through a January thaw.  Right now the temperatures are in the mid 50's and it is raining.  Sounds like typical spring weather, right?

 

You're right, it is typical spring weather, but this is January, the middle of winter.  It's usually cold, windy and snowy this time of year. 

 

It seems like some of nature has been fooled it is spring. 

 

Yesterday, while out showing homes, one of the homes had a large open area next to it.  Would you believe I saw robins in that field.  Not one or two, but dozens.  I had to take a double take to make sure I was seeing correctly.  My buyer was with me, so I do have a witness. 

 

Normally, robins are considered as one of the first signs of spring.  Does this mean that spring is around the corner?  Or, with this January thaw, have the robins have been fooled?

 

I don't know the answer to that, but I will take spring right about now.  I am most ready for it.

Kristin:

I enjoy seeing the new growth in the spring time.  It's beautiful.  I wonder what the robins will be thinking when the cold blast comes back at the end of the week.

Our weather has been crazy!  Unfortunately, I think it will get colder before it gets warmer!
