Mr. SPVR Bear has come out of hibernation and is saying the end of winter is over for Crane Lake. He watches as the snow continues to melt and the water flowing into the lake. After a walk on the ice in the warm sun he senses that open water is just around the corner. The quote of the day from him was ” I may not be a ground hog, but I know the sights and sounds of spring. It is here to stay”.
