This newsletter is more of a late summer newsletter, but I hope it finds you enjoying the warmer months as they start to wind down.
Summers are fairly busy in our office. Our staff have multiple projects to tend to, and our mosquito staff try to keep the pesky insects to a minimum. We are also preparing for the fall months when things start to quiet down a little, and planning for next year starts all over again.
As time continues to fly by, I hope you have the opportunity to enjoy the rest of your summer days. The days are already getting shorter, and fall is just around the corner.
Spring Thaw…Spring is always an exciting time of year. The temperatures start to warm and flowers bloom. The dreariness of winter fades and going outdoors is much more enjoyable.In this edition of our newsletter, you will find our annual report for 2018. Please take the time to review the work completed in Northumberland County during 2018. You will see it was a busy year for us!You may see our technicians out and about in the coming months as they work on field projects and start mosquito surveillance. We look forward to seeing you out and about in the warmer weather as you start your outdoor spring projects! Enjoy the warmer days.
As I write this, I realize that spring is a short 2 months away. But as much as the winter chill and shorter days can dull the mood; Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day give plenty of reasons to celebrate during this season. Although our office is a little quieter during December, our staff quickly gets busy in January planning for a new year. There is always work to be done, and we look forward to accomplishing much in 2019 in the field of conservation.
You may notice on ongoing theme as you read some of the articles in this issue. It’s been a tough summer. The seemingly unending rainfall resulted in a lot of flooding issues throughout the county.
Summer is always a fun time of year. Vacations, warmer weather, longer days; it’s as if we spend the whole year preparing for this particular season. Don’t blink, because before you know it Fall will be here!
After what seemed like a very long winter, spring is finally here. The weather may be questionable, but soon enough we will be enjoying the festive display spring puts on every year.
