I said farewell to winter in We Biked the Whole Winter. I considered waiting until March 20, the official first day of spring, but the sustained spring-like weather and decent 15-day forecast convinced me that it was time to move forward.

I stand behind this decision. Okay, yesterday was 18 degrees with (allegedly, although I did not feel it) a windchill of 0. I overdressed and was sweating half-way to work. The sunshine was strong and everything was bright and beautiful. That’s springtime, folks! And, yes, currently the news says it’s 15 degrees, but I imagine it will be like yesterday, so I’m not worried. And every day from now on in the forecast is in the 50’s. So I’ll throw on my two gloves, long undies, scarf, and boots today, but I’m not giving spring up! Who’s with me? ;)
