Waldo News

By Tom Seymour | Feb 01, 2020



My apologies for not having a Waldo town column last week. Unforeseen circumstances got in the way.

So here it is February and spring is only seven weeks off. Given the mild winter, it seems we can hope, with realistic expectations, for an early spring.

Next, I must announce, with much regret, that I am selling my house and 10 acres of land on the East Waldo Road. I’m looking for someplace where I don’t have to deal with firewood, some small, efficient house. It needn’t have a lot of land, either. I’m paring down things in my life. Interested parties may contact me using the contact information atop this column.

Under the feeder

Would you believe it? I saw a large flock of robins last week. But instead of being recent migrants, these were probably birds that have spent the winter on the immediate coast or perhaps on one of the offshore islands. All the same, it was encouraging to see the historic harbingers of spring this early in the year.

Perchin’ prediction

I have yet to do much ice fishing because of thin ice. Sure, some small ponds have plenty of ice, but even then, warm weather and rain have compromised the ice quality and integrity.

Hopefully, I’ll try the ice again this week. My store of frozen perch and crappie fillets is thinning and fresh fish sounds enticing.
