It's almost spring! I can almost smell it. I can feel it. Just a little patience and I know I will wake up one day and it is already at my doorstep.
But in fairness to winter... I am so glad that I survived another winter. It would have been a fun winter if only I was able to ride my snowmobile more often.
And if only I was able to go ice-fishing even just once. Because those are the best part of winter for me.
But then, I am so happy that the snow bank is almost gone... the grass is already showing up... the trees are budding now... and the temperature is warming up.
I guess... this is the shortest winter I've ever experience since I came here. For the last couple of years winter was brutally cold. I can remember that it was already last week of April and we still had snow shower and the snow banks were still higher than me.
But winter is not really that bad after all. Aside from the outdoor activities that I truly enjoy... winter also can bring out the best in every person and the economy.
Yes... we can save on electric bill in some point with the natural refrigeration system
and improvised food heater. LOL
But spring is almost here... and winter will be left behind... together with the bad experiences we had... and move on to another season as we await another winter in a not so distant future ahead.
