March 01, 2015
March is finally here, and will hopefully be heralding warmer weather, blue skies and green grass, longer days and shorter nights —all the harbingers of spring.
It’s been a LONG winter this year, and many of us have experienced late-winter storms, the “Snowpocalypse” of 2015, power-outages, far too many school snow days, and temperatures well below any we are used to. February was COLD. Finger-numbing, teeth-chattering, record-breaking, so-frigid-it-hurts-to-breathe, miserably, mercilessly cold. And the cold has just lingered. And lingered. As I write these words, on the last day of February 2015, there is STILL snow on the ground outside. Even those who really enjoy cold, snowy weather seem to be ready to say goodbye to this winter.
