Temperatures are steadily in the 40s -- 50s even! -- during the day. The sun is out and making things seem warmer. The trees are budding. There's some snow, but it's hanging around in dregs, like washed up seaweed. I've taken the plastic shrink wrap off the windows and the cats are loving having open windows to sit in even if it's only for a few hours a day. The winter has been wet, warm and short -- sure indicators in Michigan that something is wonky. Early March should mean ice storms. We should get snow on Easter that closes school down the following Monday.
