Saturday February 5, 2005 sunny and warm

Good news and bad news.
The good news is that it's a great day, warm and sunny.
The bad news is that it's still the middle of winter.

These kind of days make you think of picnics and flying kites and walks in the park. Maybe you think about starting to work on the yard. You just want to get outside and breathe the fresh air. But the sad fact is that next week winter will return with the frigid cold and slush and grey skies. It wouldn't be so bad if winter just came and stayed the whole season. You would get adjusted and there would be sunny days of white shiny snow and ice skating and sledding and skiing. Here in the midwest we get a little of everything and not a lot of anything. Once it freezes, it thaws. Once the snow melts, it snows. We get a lot of mud and slush. You really need all-weather tires and all-weather clothes.

The good news will last for the day and make me think of spring. It won't be long now.
