I was delighted to see stars in the sky when I went outside this morning. It’s the first morning in several days that the skies haven’t been black. I knew when I saw the twinkling stars that the sky had finally cleared. I also was glad that the temperatures had cooled a bit and slowed the melt. I actually got to walk on solid ground when I fed the horses.
Apparently other people also are excited that the fog burned off. When I went to the grocery store this morning, two of the workers were standing in front of the window gazing outside. I wasn’t sure what they were looking at until one of them nodded toward the sun and commented on the beautiful sight.
When I left the office for lunch I encountered several people who either had left their coats open or who were not wearing coats. The sun must be a sign of spring for them. I’m not sure if I’m ready to go coatless, but today’s sunshiny weather certainly does put a spring to my step.
