Imbolc/Candlemas Links

Got my copy of the Society for Ecological Restoration’s Tallgrass Restoration Handbook in the mail today.  Absolutely salivating and can’t wait for the prescribed fire season.  And in fact, even through the blizzard we’re seeing the first signs of biological spring.  Predators mating (grey foxes traveling together, owl courtship vocalizations, etc.).  American Robins showing up.  Cardinal song.  Here we go!

–As snowy as this winter’s been, it’s been nothing like the Great Snow of 1717.

–It’s Imbolc/Candlemas, midway between the solstice and equinox.  Read all about the intercultural history of this holiday.

–Via Discover Magazine, this is completely bizarre.  Can anyone actually own-two-eyes confirm it?

–The American West is still in an incredible water crisis.

–Also, of course, Egypt.

Stay warm!
