Warm in the Morning

The temperature this morning is 37 degrees, the warmest it's been in a week. It's all downhill from here. Tonight a wave of arctic air rolls into town just in time for another frigid Tuesday morning.

But today is a better story. Today reverses the normal winter order of things: It will be warm in the morning, colder later on. That's a relative "warm," you understand. Two layers instead of three. A run at 9 instead of noon.

Still, today's thaw is a reminder that we will not always have winter, that the ground will soften and slender green shoots will emerge.

Even thinking about this sends my internal temperature up a couple of degrees!
