Happy Spring?

The sunshine this morning has been a blessing. It's been so gray and overcast that I think everyone's spirits are getting down. It's hard to be grateful for anything when you feel oppressed by the weather.

Spring arrived here at 6:02 a.m. We were, last night, supposed to awaken to overcast again, but I am truly grateful for the sunshine. It's still clear as a bell as noon approaches and I type this.

It is quite frosty, however. The wind chill, something you don't think about in spring, was 5 degrees this morning. That's a brisk westerly wind snapping the flag on the flagpole across from the office.

Yet, there is promise. I see spring bulbs poking through the ground. A couple days of 50 degrees and there will be flowers.

Beverage:  Yorkshire Gold tea
