Most of the people that I talk to here in SW Michigan are anxious for winter to be over and for spring to arrive.
While there is still snow on the ground, it is mostly relegated to shaded areas and snow banks, courtesy of the snowplows.
Yesterday, with the temperature topping out at an unseasonably warm 59 degrees F and sixth straight day of sunshine, some eager beavers apparently decided to rush things and were spotted wearing shorts.
Even though I, too, am anxious to put winter behind me and march into spring, wearing shorts when it is 59 degrees seems a bit optimistic.
Personally, I’d wait until it is at least 70. Does that mean that I’d be rushing things as well?
