So could that be it? Could that be the last arctic cold front exiting stage left at sunset last night after another day of snow and whatever those ice pebbles were that managed to roll down the inside of my fleece-lined sweatshirt that has become my staple piece of clothing this May? While we are all being told by increasingly gun-shy weathermen to “be patient spring is coming” (I’m starting to wonder if they all aren’t living it up in the same house in the wilds of Florence County under the Witness Protection Program playing party games every time it snows or there’s a hard freeze) I see on the calendar that in a mere six weeks the days will start to get SHORTER. So today, I’m swapping out my long johns that long ago became a second skin for a pair of shorts, damn the torpedoes full speed ahead!
