If I were asked on Saturday about the possibility of yet another snow day today, I would have said doubtful. Sure I noted the weather forecast last Tuesday when my favorite weather bloggers mentioned the European models were favoring snow this week. But to tell you the truth I ignored it- mostly because I’m ready for spring.
The signs of spring are popping up and out everywhere. On Saturday I took a jog around the neighborhood and was delighted to see a swath of purple crocus standing tall on a stream bank. There were also sightings of the first yellow forsythia to burst from its bud and a rabbit hopping along his own bunny trail.
Saturday's spring sightings are now buried under seven inches of new snow and this teacher was treated to yet another snow day. Yes, I know I said I was ready for spring, but this morning I could only smile as I turned off my alarm. More sleep is always a good thing, no matter what the season.
