I'm a glass half full kind of person.  So I'm going on record to say I think this might be winter's last blast.  I'm not a meteorologist so I truly have no basis for my belief.  It's just a hunch that this week might be the last time we'll have to deal with snow for a while.

Am I in denial?  Misguided?  Crazy?  Time will tell.  Maybe the groundhog will prove to be right. But in addition to my gut feeling that the weather will start to improve soon, I've been seeing some signs of spring.  I'm noticing more birds.  The sound of their chirping is refreshing, isn't it?  There have been a few sunny days lately when the air just sort of felt different.  More like spring, if that makes any sense.

Do you think after tomorrow's storm that we'll be able to put our shovels away?  What signs of spring have YOU been noticing?
