Two weeks ago a blizzard charged through Michigan complete with white out conditions and icy roads. Schools, government offices and some businesses were closed for two days as we dug out from under over a foot of snow. Last week, almost point by point, we repeated the winter weather horror. Today, the forecast is sunny and dry with a high pushing sixty degrees.
What a difference a week makes.
Okay, brief side note here. Partly cloudy is how the forecast is officially noted. But, I ask you. What’s the true difference between partly cloudy and partly sunny? IMHO, someone, some where’s glass half full perception of life.
However you look at it, all that nasty ice and snow is melting fast. Which is fine with me. Let me tell you, as an avid walker, a few puddles are so much easier to navigate than a solid expanse of unforgiving ice. After way too many days pounding the treadmill in my family room while watching DVR’d episodes of The Voice, I’ll be outdoors this afternoon and loving it. Striding along the roadside as the sun sparkles off growing streams of water as it splashes and gurgles to the drains.
Happy arrival of Spring, Everyone!
