We had a real spring day Wednesday and it was so nice. A beautiful blue sky, warm temperature allowing me to leave the winter coat home, and the smell of spring in the air. There were highway department trucks all over the place with men cleaning out drains and rolling up snow fencing, and lots of people jogging, running, and walking for exercise. After the winter we've had, everybody has a touch of Spring fever, and its contagious on a day like that.
On Thursday it wasn't quite as warm as it was yesterday but it was tempting enough to compel me to go out without a coat and I regretted it more than once as the cold wind picked up and the temperature never got above 50. But it was fun to realize that soon enough I'd be hanging up the coat for good until late Autumn comes again and we start the cycle all over again.
Spring is a tease, with warm days - and then cooler ones - and unpredictability the rule. But it's fun to be teased and I welcome it. It's not quite official on the calendar yet, but from the smiles all around and the general air of optimism that's palpable, I think its safe to say its here.
