Spring is here
Posted by keithosaunders on February 9, 2011
February in California. The holidays are ancient history, football is over with, and the winter school break looms. This can only mean one thing: Spring is here.
We’re breathing a sigh of relief now that the long, brutal winter has finally come to a close. We’ve endured some rain, a little wind, and a few earthquakes that were too small to measure. Us Californians are stolid people, however, and we endured the harsh winter weather in stoic silence as it wreaked havoc on jogging schedules and ruined outdoor wine-tasting events.
Blizzards in Chicago? Ice storms in New York? Snow in Dallas?! That’s all well and good, but here in Berkeley, the cherry blossoms are in bloom and we’ve had nothing but clear 68 degree days for the past two weeks.
With this kind of weather opening day of the 2011 baseball season must be right around the corner. What’s that you say? Seven weeks?! D’oh!
