Do Not Enter
Back to reality! One more full day of winter. One more thrust of winter! After the mild weather of last week around here, this morning we're waking to a late winter snow event. What a way for ol' man winter say his goodbyes. Back a few years, my friends and I would relish one more 'hit' like this. One last snowball fight, one remaining trip down the backyard hill, one more school day slip sliding our way to Lincoln. Big flakes this time of year usually meant the walk home would be on sun-covered wet sidewalks anyway. Besides, our baseball gloves were already being worked over with linseed oil and repeated workouts with a ball. That wonderful season baseball was lurking over the horizon for all to enjoy. This morning, all I can say is 'good riddance'! Why? There are just 13 days til opening day for the Sox!
