The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. -Henry Van Dyke

If you are reading this, stop immediately and go outside!!!! Who ordered this weather?!?! It's gorgeous!! I stood outside facing the sun with my eyes closed just soaking it all in...until people started to stare at me. I remember reading once 'you know you live in Utah if...' It was a long list of things that are peculiar to us 'Utahrns'. One said, "if you think 20* is 'a little chilly'". I am not one of these people. I think 20 is freezing...BELOW FREEZING actually! I HATE being cold. By about mid-January I am officially done with winter. Tomorrow at precisely 5:48 marks the vernal equinox and the official start of spring. Everyone, say hasta luego to our last day of winter!! It's a great day...there is a baby chickadee outside my window, the sky is blue, and I don't have to put on my annuraaq to go outside!! Welcome back spring!!



No, I didn't take this picture...
