We're dreaming...

of everything green and colorful. And with daylight savings time (DST) coming this weekend, well we can only keep dreaming. So when I stepped out this morning with 3dogs I thought of the warm balmy long first day of DST. That first Sunday after the night of "springing forward" still amazes me to this day, when 5:30 - 6:00pm comes around and the sun is not setting. 7:00pm and I'm still seeing daylight. The next day, I leave work to a sky filled with light.

But this morning when I was dreaming of that balmy day, I was hit with an unwelcome blast of cold air against my cheeks. And tomorrow it is suppose to snow. How are we to enjoy this springing forward, if there is no spring to go forwards towards? It just isn't natural. Maybe I should move to Arizona where some intelligent law person decided that foolin' with time was just plain bad.

I love the snow - I hope the summer never comes. When it is hot out I have to spend all day sprawled face down on the air conditioning vents and I have to take my walks after the sun goes down! Yuck!
