Well, we all want spring to be here, but it’s really dragging its feet, isn’t it? We’ve all done that false start thing where the weather is lovely for a few days and gives us time to allow ourselves to get used to lighter coats, or no coats at all.
Then it suddenly changes its mind and we rush out the door one morning only to have a very rude awakening. I saw more than a few people this past week trudging along the sidewalk with no coat, hat or mittens, their faces clenched in frustration while the snow was flurrying all about them.
I even spotted a skateboarder who had totally given up on the wet, icy sidewalk and took to carrying his trusty board instead of risking a nasty slip.
