This is the view out the window above my desk this morning--the first day of Spring. Here in New York, March blew in like a lion with a major snowstorm on the first. I was hoping it would go out like a lamb, but it's hard to imagine we're due for balmy weather here anytime in the near future! But as a native western New Yorker raised on the shores of Lake Erie's Blizzard Belt--where I experienced snowy First Communion Days, Mother's Days, and even Memorial Days--I'm not all that freaked out. Yet.
