This time last year the azaleas, forsythia, and daffodils were all in bloom. I was posting signs of spring. Though we didn't get the forecasted snow today, we did get sleet and lots of cold rain. It's bleak out there. They're forecasting another storm for Sunday-Monday, maybe through Tuesday. Predictions of much rain, wind and cold temperatures for Monday, the day of the Boston Marathon, our official first day of spring around these parts. The runners might prefer cool temps to warm or hot, but high winds and sopping rain can't be good. The hearty marathon supporters will come out to cheer the runners on, I have no doubt of that. But it's just, well, yucky.
At least Saturday is looking good - partly sunny and around 50ºF. I'll be sure to get outside for a good long walk. Friday night, tomorrow after work, I have another GNO (girls nite out) in Boston that should be lots of fun. And Saturday it appears I'll have some dinner plans.
In Paris, it is already printemps it seems - in the 70's. Hopefully that will continue when I'm there (just a little over two weeks now!).
