I promised myself I would not cry when this wonderful weather spell ended and I’m going to hold myself to that promise.  We managed to break two records this week when we reached 67 degrees twice and I do not recall ever seeing our local lakes flowing with water and people already in their yards working on spring clean-up in late February.  As the storms and snow arrive over the next day, I’m going to be grateful for the gorgeous sunsets, the ice melting, the swans back to swimming and the robins announcing spring’s early arrival.  Okay, I lied, the threat of rain, high wind, thunder, tornadoes and snow in a twenty-four hour period is enough to make a woman blubber.
