The days grow longer now that we're just over a month away from the vernal equinox. Spring is coming! The sun's not setting until about 5:30 now, so there's an extra hour of daylight in the afternoon.
However: It's 13°F. And that's a good 15° warmer than yesterday.
So which is it? In this awkward in-between stage, do we focus on the lengthening days and strengthening sunshine, or do we wallow (indoors, of course, with fleece and flannel) in the arctic chill, watching the snow fall and wondering if our corner of the planet will ever thaw?
