The last few days have been gloriously warm, finally! While running yesterday I actually regretted not wearing shorts. It was 11 C (52 F) and sunny and absolutely wonderful, warm enough in the sun for me to feel overheated in pants.
The snow has been melting like crazy. The southern-sun-exposed parts of our property are now almost completely free of snow. We still have over a foot left in the more shaded areas, and all up the driveway, but as for the property in front of the house -- we have most of our lawn again!
It's grey and matted and soggy, but it's enough of a lawn to encourage the kids to get out with the Speedminton gear and have some spring fun.
