back to reality

After 10 days in Florida, despite the cold front that kept temperatures down below 75 many days, it was a bit of a shock to come back to zero degrees and then snow. But walking the dog this morning I realized that it really was ok. Its almost the end of February - soon it will be March - the beginning of the end of winter - or in really warm years, the beginning of Spring! I am looking forward to snow melting, even slush because it means Spring is coming. Can't wait to see buds pushing up from the ground, looking forward to flowers coming up and birds returning. Feeling warm sunshine that we haven't felt in a long time.

In the Florida keys, one day it was very cloudy and the UV index was 4 - contrast that to Minnesota with a sunny day and a UV index of ZERO! Looking forward to a few warm rays of sunshine and a little natural Vitamin D to counteract my deficiency!
