Younger than Springtime

Today is the first day of Spring. Yayyyyyy. It's been a long long time coming.

Granted, it is not actually Spring until 23:47, but the Vernal Equinox still makes under the wire to appear today.

The winter has been a harsh one up here in Northeast Ohio. We got our January temps in mid-November, and they stayed. And stayed. And stayed. We had our second snowiest January - missing the record by less than 2.5".

But March has been ok. I know there are a few more snow storms to come before we're done with this season. There always are. Sometimes even in May - but we're always hopeful. ...and that is something you rarely hear from me.

Yesterday, coming home from work, I saw true signs of Spring.....and right on the side of our drive

Pretty cool, huh?

Before you know it, Morty will be emailing, telling us that college-aged boys are out on the South Oval in shorts playing Hacky Sack.

Maybe we can finally get him to use his digital camera!
