Old Man Winter

Where does the time go?  Where was Old Man Winter this year?  I don’t know and quite honestly I’m glad Old Man Winter didn’t show his icy face this year.  Here we are March 1st.  In the past week the temps have yoyoed from the 60s to the 20s back to the 60s and today, mid 30.  How many days have the temps been above 50 this winter? My guess, a lot.  If you couldn’t figure it out my favorite time of year is summer.  My second favorite is spring.  Why you ask, because its the end of winter and time for new beginnings.  The winter is over and the summer is still all ahead of you.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a pretty snow fall on Friday night.  And I love to ski.  But please, just don’t snow on my driveway.  All this while I’m planning my second trip to Colorado for an epic skiing adventure in 10 days, can’t wait.  In all fairness I suggested the Caribbean.

I do love New England.  I love the change of season.  I love the ocean and Cape Cod where I grew up.  During any given winter my thoughts will drift to a warmer lifestyle with year round green waters and flip flops, but then spring settles in, the temperatures rise and the sun is up a little bit earlier each day, so I remove the “For Sale” sign from my yard and enjoy the warm sun on my face.
