Last week many locals were cruising around town in shorts and flip flops, pulling bikes out of their garages and pumping up tires, gearing up to hit the nearest dry trail. This week the snowblowers are back, boots out of closets and skis on car racks. This occurance is very typical, but every year it’s seems to be a SURPRISE!! It’s not so much the ramifications of having to move snow once again, it’s the mental shift from one season to another…and then back again…
My son Colby couldn’t be more thrilled to pull out his shovel and watch the tractors pass, but most “big kids” would give anything to rewind time and experience the bliss of last weeks warm temps and visions of summer bbqs.
It won’t be long until we’re back to spring and the good news is that this time of year the snow never last long. It seems to melt at record rates and we’ll all be so much happier when this snow turns to water and our lakes and rivers are that much higher come summertime.
Enjoy the day, play in the snow and see the seasons through the eyes of a child!
