Winter's Dying Breath
This is the view out my back window on Thursday morning, the first full day of spring:
I know we've been "lucky". Many other places near us have been slammed by snow and have had a ton of snow days. Us? Nada. We got two days off for Hurricane Sandy, which ended up being just a big rainstorm here. Having no snow days isn't a terrible thing, because we get out a few days earlier in June. I'm heading to Ireland right after school ends, so I'll take those extra days. A few two hour delays would have hit the spot, though....
While the dusting is lovely, and doesn't interfere with the work commute, the cold snap does place a chill on the weekend plans. I'm a den mom for Cub Scouts, and we are going camping. I detest being cold, and we were planning tent camping. Guess who chickened out and cried "uncle!" I'll be sleeping in the heated cabin this weekend. Forget roughing it, I need sleep!
