Begging For Spring




I never would have guessed that we would be spending our first day of spring break sloshing around in wet snow, but that's exactly what we did. And I never would have suspected that on the first night of Passover, I'd be craving gumbo, but I was. Seriously, can we be done with winter? Please! Please!! Please!!! I feel like Mo Willems' famous pigeon in high level begging mode.. please let spring begin!

Many, many, MANY years ago, when I was in junior high school (go, Tigers!) I remember being very unhappy with the weather because we only got a few very light (sub-inch) dustings of snow all winter long. This year I've caught myself looking back at that former "me" of several lifetimes ago, and thinking...

"YOU FOOL!"

<sigh>

Welcome to Washington, gang, where the only thing less predictable than the primary regional employer is the regional weather.
