There is less than 3 weeks until the official start of spring (March 20th). Unfortunately, Mother Nature doesn’t tend to follow the Gregorian calendar like we do.
As I look out my 4th floor office window, I see blue sky brightened by the sun. There isn’t a cloud in the sky.
As I begin to lower my eyes, I see the tops of the trees…still leafless and brown. Further down I see small piles of white snow and the roads are dusted with grey, dirty road salt/sand remains. And I know that if I was to look at a thermometer it would read minus-something-horrible degrees Celsius.
I guess you can say “things are looking up”! Well, I know that I will keep looking up to the blue sky. I need spring to come. I need warm weather. I need walks outside with the girls without having to put on 18 layers of clothes, snow pants, hats, mitts, boots. I need trips to the park not trips to the tobogganing hill. I need drives in the car with my windows open not the heater on full blast.
So many things to look forward too. If it could only come a bit sooner.
