Spring Has Sprung

Spring’s arrival in New England is a bit deceiving.  According to my calendar, winter is over.  The robins have arrived en masse, another sign of spring’s presence.  However, the weather seems to dispute that fact, as we welcomed spring with a delightful mix of snow, rain, and sleet on Monday.  Our current forecast calls for more snow tonight and tomorrow.  Not quite what you envision when you contemplate spring.

Although at this point in the year I am ready for warmer temperatures, flip flops, and open windows, this colder weather and precipitation is part of the package deal of living in the northeast.  Yes, I’ve had enough of being cold every time I walk outside.  But if I look at it objectively, I know that I appreciate the warmth and beauty of spring more because of the cold and dreariness of a long winter.

As I anticipate the true arrival of spring, there are spring-like ways to bide my time.  Adding a little color in your window boxes, shopping for a backpack for spring hikes, and planning some spring break fun are all options to keep my thoughts sunny while winter still tries to hold its grasp on us.
