The second half of February usually begins the slow march to spring here in Salt Lake. It’s trying to snow outside a little today, but between the snow, there will be warmer days and some days where the snow will mix in with rain.
March is always iffy, but there’s never the bitter cold of January and the snow here in the valley usually melts off fairly fast while still building up in the mountains. On the southern, sunny side of our house, I noticed last week that daffodils were already poking an inch or so out of the soil.
I don’t think I’ve ever looked forward to spring more than this year. Warmer weather and a likely emergence from this hellish Covid gloom will cheer up my mood enormously. Yesterday, I prematurely even pumped up the tires on my mountain bike.
