Last Gasp

The calendar says Spring arrived a couple days ago. While the daytime temperatures are certainly warmer and the grass is starting to green up, winter is not giving up so easily. There are still patches of snow hanging on in the shaded areas of the neighborhood.

Since the coronavirus has dampened any enthusiasm for leaving the house, I spent the morning watching my neighbor’s slide warm up. A bright cloudless day. As the sun rose higher in the sky, the temperature quickly rose above freezing. My patience paid off when I saw the last sign of winter take its final gasp, gracefully gliding down the slide with an unceremonious plop into the yard. No shade here, it’s done for!

Yippee! Spring has Sprung!

Thought for the Day: Spring is Nature’s way of saying, “let’s party”.
