April Come She WIll

This winter seems to have gone forever.  One day of snow followed by another followed by days where the very air seemed frozen.

Normally I love winter, but even I’ve hit my limit this year.  The last few days of nearly normal (and slightly above normal) temperatures have kindled in me a desire to see leaves bud, blossoms erupt in a fragrant flowerdrift — which is much easier to vanish than the snow sort — and to view a sky that is a brighter, softer blue than the blue of perpetual January which has been our lot since November.

I know that S&G are talking about a woman in their song, but I choose to take it literally  — April come she will.  And soon, I hope!
