It is just about dark on Thursday, March 18, and I have been standing out by the carport listening for the evening song of a robin.
It has been a warm, hazy, partially cloudy spring-like day. Oddly enough, it has not dropped below freezing yet, but I expect it soon will. The weathermen on all the TV stations have been forecasting snow tonight. So, it looks like the first day of spring, March 20, will once more be snowy, which will probably be long gone by the time you receive this paper.
