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.
