Snow Shower

After a quick trip to Florida, I'm back in the frozen North. I really enjoyed those 80s, but now I'm back to reality here amid some morning snow showers. The winter is trudging slowly along up here, but it's high school basketball  tournament time and my beloved Red Sox have started spring training in Fort Myers, so as they say 'hope springs eternal'. In another month, it's baseball season in the majors and spring REALLY will make it's way up here probably in early May. Until then, I'll be hanging on. Hey, I hear that Restaurant Week in coming in March. See, I'll make it. Basketball, the Sox, food and work commitments will guide and push me along.

  6. I love the snow-tinged grass. So pretty! We aren't basketball fans and don't follow pro baseball much, but when we do, it's the Atlanta Braves.

  8. Glad you had a nice getaway. Baseball was on my mind today too for my post. I'll be attending a Red Sox night game next month. Can't wait!

  13. You left some of that Maine cold down here. Tomorrow is going to be 60 degrees!

    I am having a hard time putting "beloved" and "Red Sox" in the same sentence this year. It will take some work (and wins) for me to restore my ardor. I am going to the spring training game on Thursday (against Northeastern, of all things!) and the following week against the Marlins.
