signs of spring >: (

Yesterday the phone rang just as I was reaching for the broom to try to sweep the snow off the cars. Because "Private" on my caller ID usually means my friend the doctor on her cell phone, I answered. It was a robocall from a candidate for local office--one I will probably vote for in spite of this. Yes, the primary election day is less than three months away. Spring is on its way.


  1. Ah1 Election day! It seems the candidates here campaign for at least a year to 6 months before it actually comes to voting day. I'm glad you're seeing, or, feeling some signs of spring. I don't imagine the temperatures are too bad there.

  2. I'm not sure whether it's against the rules or just considered bad form to start campaigning before the deadline for registering as a candidate, which was last week.

    The temperature has not been at all spring-like. This morning when I left for work it was 12F/-15C. It warmed up to freezing this afternoon, but the next few days looks about the same.
