Today is day 10 of the March SOL, the daily writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”.
I actually saw our grass this morning. The snow has begun to melt and large snowbanks are slowly retreating.
It has been an intensely cold winter. The weatherman said yesterday that there had been over fifty straight days with temperatures below freezing (0C here in Ontario). Many of those days were -25C – breaking records everywhere.
The spring forward time change actually is a tool used to instil optimism. We see more sun in the evening and we can almost taste spring coming.
Spring plants on our dining room table help as well. The daffodils and crocuses hint at the blooms to come. Bring it on!
