Shadows of the Night

Once again, it is a "holiday" I'm stumped by.

Six more weeks of winter. Does that mean six more weeks past the Vernal Equinox? Or six more weeks from now, which actually does then take it to the date of the Vernal Equinox?

And if there is no shadow, does that mean winter ends NOW or just right on time? Tres confusing.

The reality is, winter will continue until March 20th no matter what - and winter-like weather well beyond that, even if in spurts. The days will come and resemble the one that just past before, though not exactly...sans Andie McDowell.

There are worse things (than Andie McDowell?) than living the same day over trying to correct the mistakes that you've made, I suppose. Or at least to change an outcome. One would have to deal on a daily basis with their Ms. McDowell, as it were, and having to hear "I Got You Babe" - a huge huge deterrent.

I can look beyond the gloom of winter. Spring is right around the corner. another six weeks.
