It's so easy to become depressed on a blah Saturday in upstate New York.
It's cloudy. We've had snow flurries on and off all day.
It's full of slush. Cars are coated with crusty white briny road yuck. Piles of snow lie everywhere.
This was what my son's car thermometer showed on his way to work yesterday. -27F works out to about -32.7 C.
But then I thought back to just yesterday, when it was so cold, and my spouse volunteered to take me to work.
I stepped outside, and there was the sunrise. No, this is not photoshopped.
We are far from seeing the end of winter. Our forecast for the next few days is not encouraging. It's going to be a long slog to spring.
Today, we are doing a seed inventory, having ordered our two community gardening plots. Then, we'll see what we want to buy or order for our garden.
As for the weather- I will always remember that sunrise.
