Reasons to celebrate!

Two days until Spring! I can’t wait. It is hard to believe that although it is 0 here to start the day (but may well climb to 30!) that spring is just a couple of days away.

Also hard to believe that two years ago today, it was 70 degrees.

Average high for this day in this area is 35. So two years ago, we were 35 degrees above average, this year we are 35 degrees below average. You can see how averages don’t really tell the story.

However – the real reasons to celebrate?
-I needed SUNGLASSES driving to work today.
-We have more than TWELVE HOURS of daylight now (12 hours and three minutes, to be exact)!
-Cold nights and warm days mean.. MAPLE SYRUP! I love maple syrup. is there anything better on vanilla ice cream?
-One month from today, we will be heading south. Where, by the way, I expect to see flowers. Green stuff on ground and trees. NO MORE SNOW. I am bringing shorts, sandals, bathing suit and painting my toenails.

So get cracking, Spring, it is your time to shine.
