The layers of ice caked on our driveway have almost melted away.
The coat that I wore to school this morning went unworn as I left school this afternoon.
The forecast on weather.com predicts temperatures over 40 for the next ten days.
The city of Buffalo is releasing a collective sigh of relief.
It appears that winter (or the worst of it) is over for this year.
I am not a winter wimp. I am from Denver, Colorado, and I went to school in Provo Utah--both snowy, cold places. But Buffalo winter has been an entirely new experience for me. Five months of endless gray, freezing winds, and icy driveway is a little much for me. It honestly starts to make me feel depressed.
I am so--and I mean SO--happy that Spring is almost here.
I plan to do the following as often as possible:
-go for after-school runs (Sure beats a treadmill.)
-wear my comfy, summery dresses (Sure beats pants and a sweater.)
-ride my red bike to the grocery store (Sure beats wasting gas.)
It may not be sunny and warm yet...but it sure feels a lot closer than it did last week.
