To really appreciated Spring, you have to live through Winter. There is no other way. This last weekend was spectacular. After a fairly hard winter, we finally had two days of real warmth - 50 F on Saturday and 56 F on Sunday. Certainly not warm by most people's scale, but with a foot a snow on the ground, many were moved to wearing shorts. Moving water is always beautiful, but seeing moving water against a snow bank is even more so.
Don't worry about calling anyone in the upper Midwest today. We are all in a great mood.
