I am not a big fan of winter in Oregon. I like to see the sun.
Winter here is very cloudy, grey and wet. Chill to the bone kind of wet.
The season of winter is one that i spend looking for spring. I have to admit, though, that
spring does come fairly early here in the northwest, taking a small share of winter, but sadly
it can go and steal some of the summer as well. It’s the most greedy of seasons here.
Last year it rained every single day of June. Greedy old spring.
Today, i visited the farmer’s almanac web page,
where i was informed that there are 55 days until spring.
I have even seen some signs of spring such as:
1. Teachers are starting to get crabby.
2. My neighbor was standing in his garden today.
3. There are a few dandelions in the yard.
4. The cat came out of the garage.
See, spring is just around the corner.
Though i am sure that there are many more cold, dark and wet days of winter yet to go,
I’m going to keep my eyes open for more signs of spring.
