The End Is Here

It's a few days yet to the vernal equinox, and the official temperature sign downtown still reads 19 degrees. But I'm calling it now: the winter that never really began is definitely over. This morning I saw the year's first cruising sailboat out on the harbor. At least five varieties of vegetation are sprouting in the gardens of the TurboPalace. There were pallets of air conditioners stacked up at Home Depot. And I saw a girl walking down the street tonight wearing a tank-top and sandals (very drunk, no doubt, but still.) So, one more day of "skiing" with 517 tomorrow, and then I'm letting it go. Goodbye, winter that never was. Bring on the summer.
