A Promise Of Spring

Every year about this time I notice a dramatic lengthening in the day, morning and evening both, and then announce my joy at the promise that brings.

Today is such a day. Reading my paper in bed and watching the dawn break over a crystal clear sky, here was well more than two hours of bright light on the snow before the first rays of the sun appeared at 8 am.


Just to keep things in perspective, however, the current temperature is -35C (15 below) and there's enough breeze to produce a wind chill of of about -40.

Spring will be a while yet. Put some more wood in the furnace and start the oatmeal cooking!
