I wore my spring coat today. It was -8 standing out at the bus stop this morning, but I didn't care. It's lime green and it makes me feel happy!
The sun is getting stronger, the days are getting longer. It's already light out when I leave for work, and it's still light out when I leave. The long-range forecast no longer has any minus double digits - in fact, there's more than a few numbers on the plus side. There's still mountains of snow, but you can feel things starting to turn. It's something in the air. When you have a mild spell in January, it's not the same. Now you can smell the spring, smell the earth, smell the green-ness.
We're comin' out the other side, folks.
