An early spring? ▲
Tuesday, February 19
Apparently way back on Groundhog's day, good ol' P-Phil didn't see his shadow. Which means we're in for an early spring (if you believe in the weather predicting capabilities of a rodent). I'm sure for many in the Great-Lakes and New England areas, that's fabulous news. It seems to have been a pretty chilly winter for y'all.
But I don't think Aiken saw it dip below 30 for more than than an hour or two this winter (I might be under-estimating on that one). It's been mild. A mild winter to complement a sweltering, record-breaking summer. I guess that makes sense.
I'm giving these last several days of "winter" everything I've got. I'm talking sweaters, boots, and if I'm feeling brazen, a scarf or two. At least on the days I wear something other than just jeans and a t-shirt to work. My "casual fridays" tend to last for weeks at a time.
I hope you folks up north enjoy this slow defrosting process. I'm already counting down to next winter. 308 days until Christmas 2013...
