I am surrounded by speculation that spring is thisclose! Not long now! Just around the corner! It depends on whether you consider an entire city street block the size of the corner in question.
Seriously, don't pack your picnic yet. Unless you are packing a tent to pitch over the top of your checkered blanket, you will probably get very wet and very cold.
Spring is coming. Oh, yes. It will get here eventually, but don't make the same mistake I did when I first lived here and rush it because then it just gets really depressing.
Last year, one of my children's cousins had her early May birthday party in her backyard. The sun shone, we cooked out. Presents were opened under a tree in mid-70-degree weather. It was idyllic. Then Hunk had HIS birthday party the following weekend and we were relegated inside on a very cold, very rainy weekday afternoon. Did I mention this was in MAY?
