Spring will soon arrive! Spring will begin in three days—on Friday, March 20th! The forecast for today is a high of 70°. Tomorrow and Thursday, it is forecast to be warmer yet. I have long awaited the cessation of winter—although our winders are not particularly cold or wet. The wind that has plagued us for several days has abated. It is calm today and promises to be a beautiful day.
