Weirdest winter ever

1/22/06

It’s really messing with my head that all the usual signifiers of spring are here in January: the deck is clear of snow; the rock wall is visible; the tennis balls on the lawn are starting to emerge from their frozen slumber… I keep thinking it’s going to be time to put the deck furniture out soon, clean the windows, let some fresh air run through the house.

I just know we’re going to pay for this by having twenty-below temperatures through the middle of May.
