...when you realize that Winter is over. That no matter what it does next week or even the week after, Winter is done. The temps will jiggle up and down, but trend up. We may have snow and ice, but it will be temporary. Despite the hard Winter, the daffodils are already poking through in the front yard. And I heard robins twice this weekend - they're coming out of the deep woods where they wintered. Spring's coming. It's very close now.
