Default Spring? ... Spring? ....

Help, Help, Help, .... I live in the Northeast USA.

It is so bad, the groundhog came out to see his shadow and got on a plane
for Florida.

Why do I do this to myself? Why do I live here?

I suppose it could be worse; Canada? No wonder the Canadians are loved all
over the world.

If is sympathy.

My bicycle looks like a flower basket. It sits, and sits, and sits, and
waits and waits.

I could go on but I need to shovel the snow, chop the ice, dig out the car,
..........

Is Cuba a long swim?

Les soirs d'hiver - Félix Leclerc

Les soirs d'hiver, ma mère chantait
Pour chanter le diable qui rôdait;
C'est à mon tour d'en faire autant
Quand sur mon toit coule le vent.

Parler de près,
d'amour,
d'enfant,
De soleil d'or
sur les étangs,
C'est son langage que je copie
fidèlement :
Poulette grise,
Noël,
Fanfan;
Le roi Henri,
Sylvie,
Isaban;
Sous chaque note, un peu de sang,
"J'en suis l'auteur", m'a dit Satan.
"Quand elle chantait, ta mère pleurait
Parce qu'on tuait le canard blanc,
Brisait l'écorce, prenait le fruit,
Se joue ainsi..."

Les soirs d'hiver, ma mère chantait
Pour chasser le diable qui rôdait;
C'est à mon tour d'en faire autant
Quand sur mon toit coule le vent

As that great guy with the deep voice once said:

"Spring in the Midwest...
you EARN IT!"

"Elaine, how did you do the ' thingy?

Anyway, thank you... I feel warmer already.

Whenever I think of Montreal I think of beautiful women, and the Tour de
Lille. I love both!

I know it's spring now. How? Not because of the temperatures -- it's still
below freezing in the morning. It's because I can now ride to/from work
without using my lights!

Can shorts and then sleeveless jerseys be far behind?

31F Saturday, 41F yesterday -- 61F right now! Tomorrow too...

Sunset is after 6 now. It's nice being toward the western edge of the Eastern
time zone.
