Spring is Here: What Are You Looking Forward To?
Spring isn't quite here yet, weather-wise, but the calendar says it is.
If you've got a skier in the family, most likely they could be found cheering each and every time it snowed this winter. Same goes for other winter-sports enthusiasts.
But I know there are plenty of people out there waiting for warmer weather. Spring starts today, according to the calendar, however the latest half-foot of snow we received yesterday is not exactly indicative of an end to winter.
But signs of spring were in the air recently. Remember about a week and half ago when we had sunny days and temps around 50 degrees? Most snow from the previous storm melted, and it felt like perhaps spring was here. I saw people running errands without jackets, and there was that muddy smell of spring in the air.
I've seen the ice on local waterways come and go, shink and grow, with the changing temperatures. It won't be long before we're back to fishing, swimming, sailing and kayaking.
So when exactly will that happen? I don't know. But I do find the changing of seasons to be an exciting time. Watching winter give way to spring, summer yield to fall, and the cycle continues. I get excited for what New England has to offer next — blooming buds, heat waves, foliage, first snow flakes.
