First day of spring 2006 begins with sleet and snow
The Cardinal on the limb of the barren Dogwood tree outside my window looks confused, and so am I. Today is the first day of spring 2006 and at 8 a.m. it was sleeting. Moisture clinked against the glass and bounced off the window sill, making me feel sure it was sleeting even before the weather report said so.
An hour later it is snowing. Big fat white flakes make visibility low for the Cardinal and me.
Weatherman says it won't stick because the temperature will get all the way up to 40 today.
The Cardinal leans forward on the limb and shakes his feathers in a disgusted effort to shake off the icy bits.
This is the kind of day my friend Jim says one should be able to curl up by the fire under a warm blanket and enjoy a Janice Holt Giles book.
