is it spring yet?

Last week we had rain, sleet, ice, snow and I'm pretty sure I saw all the birds who remained here huddled together in protest over the grossness of the weather.

Saturday, it was almost pleasant and Sunday was absolutely warm. The only thing wrong with the weather on Sunday was the rain.

I thought I was going to need a rowboat to get to work today and the river is way higher than it needs to be and guess what is in the forecast? More snow, ice, sleet and frigid arctic temperatures designed to make us all wish we were in the Caribbean sitting beside a pool sipping drinks from a glass with an umbrella in it. Goodness.

They have already cancelled school for tomorrow where we live because the nasty weather is supposed to start around the time the buses would be on the road and end around 6pm. Then there's a threat of more snow Wednesday night into Thursday with possible accumulation and I really just want spring to get here. I'm ready for warm days and lots of sunshine and trees blooming and the birds chirping and some hummingbirds flocking around the feeders. Is that really too much to ask?
