Signs of Spring

Memorial of St. Polycarp

Once Christmas vacation is over and the kids go back to school, the long slog through the Minnesota winter begins in earnest. To keep from going nuts many people have milestones to mark the progress toward spring. My dad had two: 1.) The winter solstice (no matter how bitterly cold it got in January, the days were always getting longer), and 2.) The amount of snow on the south side of the house (spring was here when it was gone).

I have three, and we just passed my first milestone on Sunday:
  1. Twins pitchers and catchers report to camp
  2. Easter
  3. Daylight Savings Time begins
