one of those March days


It was one of those March days when
the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:
when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.
-Charles Dickens

Today it almost reached the 40 degree mark.
This one small fact makes my head dizzy with delight.
Spring is near and I am more than ready.
I was ready, actually, since January 2nd.
Snow is all fine and good through Christmas
Even through the first of the year if I’m feeling generous
But by March I’m over it.
Like. seriously. over. it.

So, this morning when I saw that temps were supposed to reach 38-40
I gave a big toothy grin to the local weather girl that I typically loathe.

Have I told you how I cannot stand our local weather girl?
Like. really. cannot. stand. her.
It’s mean, I know, but everything about her makes me cringe,
on a daily basis actually.

But that’s beside the point.

Today she made me smile, and that’s a rarity,
That’s for sure.

Too bad I’m stuck in a room without windows five days out of seven.

But no complaints.

The sun was out, even if I wasn't around to see it.

One of our two local weather guys is a good friend of mine (and I love him dearly) - but he irritates a lot of people. The other guy drives me crazy. I think it might just be a weather-person phenomenon....
