Spring Tease

After frigid cold, the coldest weather in the thirty years on the east coast, today felt like a spring day. It was as if we had fast forwarded through the rest of January, the whole month of February, to the last weeks of March. It was lovely to feel the promise of Spring. I thought how nice it will be to start our garden, to not worry about getting around in the snow, to start living outdoors more.

But it's not Spring. We are deep in Winter with plenty still to go. If the Polar Vortex holds off global warming there should be lots of cold days ahead. That's fine with me. A little bit of Spring was nice but Winter should be Winter and Spring should be Spring. Besides, I still have plenty of cold weather activities to squeeze in. There's knitting to finish, books to read and we still need to get some sledding and a snowman in.
