Uh-huh, sure. I don't mean to be such an old bah-humbug about it, but truth be told, we've got nearly two more months of winter up here before spring really makes an appearance. (That would be in an "early" spring year.)
But what a glorious day we've had today. Not only does it look like spring out there (the air actually has a different look to it . . . no, it really does), but it smells like spring. We've had our front door standing open most of the day. (Well, okay, there IS a storm window on the top of the outer door but still . . . ).
Now at a little past 3 p.m., the temperature on the north side of the house in the shade is 47 degrees.
We've had so much melting going on today that the areas where we've shoveled paths are almost down to bare ground.
As much as I love winter, I've gotta admit all of the sunshine and melting today has given me a much needed shot of energy.
March is often our snowiest month, but if we continue to get intermittent days like this one, the accumulation of the fluffy white stuff both that is already on the ground now and any that might fall yet is definitely on a downward spiral.
