This is the time of year most Montanan’s are tired of winter. While we know we have several more weeks of snow, we long for a little break from the white stuff and the cold. Temperatures are well below 0 degrees in many parts of Montana. Friends of mine outside of Glacier National Park are seeing temperatures of -41 or so. Brr!
I still have faith that spring will come again. The days are longer, allowing for the bright glint of sun to linger on the dazzling white. Store ads have moved on from shovels and snowblowers to rakes and lawn mowers. School spring break is only a few weeks away.
Spring is time for awakening, to shed things that no longer suit us, to move away from those who would steal our peace. So plant some flowers, dance in the rain, and listen to the birds sing. To life!
