Well I was beginning to think that it wasn’t going to happen but ‘Spring has Sprung’ here in northern New Jersey. After this winter I also was beginning to think that Global Warming was a farce. Now after the past couple of winters when we had warmer weather and little snow I was a true believer in Global Warming. But this winter? After all we froze our fannies off here. It depends on who you listen to on the news, but I think that we had record snow fall too. And we all learned a new meteorlogical term ‘Polar Vortex’. Yes that too was blamed on Global Warming. I think it was just to keep us coming back night after night to watch the news and learn something that we already knew. It was cold and there was more snow on the ground.
But that was last month. Today my wife and I raked leaves and low and behold, the daffodils are coming up, so are the hiacynths, bleeding hearts, and iris. The pussy willows are in bloom and there are buds on the lilac bushes. And just yesterday the highs were in the 40’s and for tomorrow’s Yankee opener they are calling for cold and wet (rain). “Those April Showers bring May Flowers” It was in the upper 50’s and we even got to work on our base tans. Oh yeah. Happy Days are here again.
So what is the point of this blog, nothing, just all round Spring goodness. Enjoy it now because before you know it, it will be Christmas again.
