HAPPY SPRING...or not...

So today at 6:36 pm, Spring will officially arrive.  As I sit looking out my office window wondering how the roads are during this late March snow we are having, I have to shake my head in disbelief.

I have to say I am getting just a wee bit sick of this winter this year.  I think that this winter specifically feels longer and colder than winters past.  The news said last night that last winter we had about 63 inches of snow compared to this winter it has only been 23 inches.  But I don't care what the news says, I'm going on what I have been feeling.

Maybe its true what they say that when you get older, you do not like the winter as much as when you were a kid.  I used to love the winter, the snow covered trees, the whole purity of a blanket of new fallen snow making the world look clean and untarnished.  But now I just loath it, the black ice, the shoveling, the waterlogged ground and high heating bills, blah, It just disgusts me.

This year, I want the Spring so badly. Just give me the 60 - 65 degree day, the flowers in bloom, I don't even care about the allergies, I just want this weather to break already.  I long for the day that I can walk in my yard with no shoes on, no giant winter coat or layers and layers of clothing you cant move in.  O please Spring Come to me!
