Spring, Spring...Wherefore Art Thou, Spring?

Spring seems to have sprung...

Well, at least as far as my daffodils and tulips are concerned.

Me?

Nope. Nada. It ain't happened...

Yet.

I  am reservedly optimistic that Spring will arrive...
Sometime.

Hopefully BEFORE Independence Day...

Hey, I'll even be really  optimistic and say before...

Father's Day?

BratChild and SIX have begun their lacrosse season,
and typically, this would signal the advent of Spring.
St.Patrick's Day SNOW... 3/17/2014... UGH!

But, I regret to say, NOT this year.

THIS year we had SNOW for St. Patrick's Day...
THIS year it is a balmy 40 degrees( compared to the -8 last week that is) and raining on the 19th of March...
THIS year the weatherman DARED to hint of the possibility of SNOW in the coming forecast...

THIS is the WINTER that will not leave.

Tomorrow, promptly at 12:26 pm Spring will arrive.
I  have no idea how anyone knows it will arrive at any precise time...
Unless it's coming by plane and that is when it's due to land...

However, as the optimist that I am...
I will be waiting with baited breath...
Winter sweaters folded and ready to be shoved into a bin for storage...
T-shirts and shorts neatly stacked on the closet shelves they occupy in the warm season...

Just  in case Spring really does arrive as scheduled...
AND she remembers to bring the sun and warm weather with her.
