A Hint of Spring
We didn't get a January thaw this year. In fact, it was one of the coldest January's on record. Today, however, the sun was shining and it was in the 40s. The kids were actually out in just their shirt sleeves and all four of us and the dog went out for a wonderful walk. The kids were plowing across snowbanks in their boots and having a great time. It felt so good just to get some fresh air. And I noticed a couple daffodil sprouts pushing their way up where the snow had melted near the house. Yes! Spring is coming!
