Counting Down To Spring
In 16 days it will be spring.
Spring is an interesting season. Yes, it can still snow, which is a pain in the ass, mostly because fatigue with such nonsense set in long ago. What makes it easier to take is knowing the end is at hand.
On the other hand, when an autumn snowstorm blows in you know the potential of a long winter is all too real a possibility.
That's the crux of the problem with winter. Whatever date is on the calendar is of little consequence. Winter can shorten both spring and fall.
If all goes well, a change in seasons will be noticeable in about two weeks and we'll be able to kiss winter '07-'08 good-bye.
