The weather has been all over the place. Negative temperatures and blizzard conditions to clear and forties…even near fifties. Right now we’re in another melt off. My problem with the weather is that it can’t all be enjoyed from inside. My wife’s close call on icy roads, a congregation of people dealing with the same…no, It’s not something I and those I love are unaffected by. I long for warmer weather…less restriction to travel…even the sound of lawns being mowed. I realize full well the current melt off isn’t the end of winter…it’s not even the end of the ice and snow we already have. We won’t be seeing green grass for some time. I know our snow certainly won’t be done yet. But as I stand here alone today it gives me hope for things to come.
