When I left work this evening, around 4:30 PM, I stepped outside into unusually warm sixty-one degree weather. There was the faint smell of spring in the air. I didn’t even need to button up my jacket. It looks as though the temperatures are going to remain mild for the rest of the week, with temps in the mid-to-upper 50s. It’s nice to have a little bit of spring in middle of winter.
It’s actually been a mild winter here in DC so far. The (Potomic) River hasn’t iced over yet. That’s been my sign for the last three winters that Winter Is Really Here. Last year, the River had frozen over by December 28th, so already we’re behind schedule. Jen mentioned it snowed yesterday morning in New York, so I’ve got nothing to complain about.
Mostly, I just enjoyed sniffing the warm air on the way home from work.
