The end of winter. It officially ended at 11:57 AM Central Time today. One look outside says that there's nothing "official" about it (maybe it's time to call the Season Cops to haul it away). Winter is still like an unwelcome guest that just doesn't leave.
Today is the first day of Spring, believe it or not. Hurry, please, with the flowers, green grass, birds, and critters that tell us summer is coming soon.

Silly me. Little did I know when I put out Top Comments: Fun in the Snow on January 5, that this winter, which had started so early, snowed so much, and became so cold that natural gas, propane and heating oil prices soared, would last this long. And nobody knew it was going to extend into areas that hadn't seen snow or cold in decades.
That January 5 diary was intended as a laugh at the already harsh conditions, but the laugh ended up being on us as winter has kept going like the Energizer Bunny. It's just kept on going and going and going. We've had enough.
Time for another pick me up, some snark, and hopefully, the last winter wink we need before actually seeing some greenery. Hopefully, winter will take the hint, pack it's icy bags and leave.
So, here we go again!
Happy First Day of Spring.FAQing Top Mojo
