Forgive me for sounding excited about a new month. . . but in the Northeast, you learn to appreciate even the smallest sign that winter is almost over. Even though we had a mild winter by Western New York standards, still the grey, dreary days of winter can take a toll on even the most positive minded person.
In Rochester, we had one snowfall of almost a foot. The rest were a few inches here and there. Definitely not a brutal winter.
I have become a strong warm weather type over the years. The things I like to do involve being outside enjoying the sunshine and warmth. My Weber smoker has been gathering dust over the winter. So has my bike! And maybe I should think about getting my lawn mower tuned up this year.
March, of course, can go from one extreme to another here. We could have another heavy snow or we could have sunshine and blue skies! I'm still waiting for the first crocuses to pop through the ground.
I am looking forward to my annual trek South this Spring for our Cousins' Reunion. That's coming up soon and this year will be our ninth year. You'll see pictures and posts on my blog. It really is a fun time.
