Spring preview

One of the nice things about living here is you can usually count on a day or two in January or February when the temperature gets up to the 70s and you can pretend spring is here already. I was lucky enough to have that day fall on my day off today, so I went out for a walk and had my traditional iced chai - something I always do on the first day it's warm enough to sit outside and drink something cool.

It is a little weird for it to be so warm and sunny outside when it still looks like winter, but I did find a few things starting to bloom or turn green. Unfortunately it will be back into the 30s next week, and I know most of the buds don't really start coming out until mid or late March. I kind of hope it will snow again between now and then. I'm getting sick of winter, but when it looks so bleak outside there might as well be some snow.
