Signs of spring


We’ve passed two of the four important markers of springtime:

  1. Instead of all the moisture freezing out of the air, the air is filling with moisture from snowmelt. This one comes before any of the others, and it’s amazing how much of a difference it makes in my mood and perception… and as a bonus, no more nosebleeds!
  2. Daylight savings time! It’ll still be light after dinner!

Yet to come are:

  1. consistently warm enough that I don’t need to sit under a blanket at night
  2. the ice on the deck melts enough that I can retrieve the snow shovel that got frozen under it sometime last fall
