Winter’s Receding Hairline

Bald spots are sprouting up upon winter’s head. Their trying to hide it, but this man isn’t fooling anyone. One season is finally receding into another.

Spring is coming to Connecticut, and fighting it is useless. Mother Nature says it’s time to go home. March usually kicks winter out by this month, but its allowed winter some extra days. This week has been a gift to a season that never really sets up camp. Our snow filled months are December through February. That isn’t much time for winter to over stay its welcome.

Goodbyes are especially sad when they last for 9 months, but December will come again before you know it. Although the waiting period can feel stretched out at times, but when it’s over everyone just complains.

Adios amigo. I love you Mr. Winter. Have fun during your trip back home. Get some rest, because I’ll want to hang out next year. Maybe you’ll even come before 2015 hits. We could share some Christmas 2014 cheer. Sometimes you even stop by in November. Until then I’ll have my memories.
