February 11, 2007 – Heatwave!

It nearly reached freezing today! People were actully excited about the warmth today.  There was a bit of a spring in everybody’s step.  Cars were being washed and vacuumed, folks were walking outdoors with just light fleece jackets.  I didn’t see any shorts, but when it hits 40, I think those will be out.

It felt like t-shirt weather. I swear the birds were happier – I heard all kinds of bird calls I hadn’t heard for a while. Now, I don’t know if I didn’t hear the calls the last few weeks because my hearing was muffled by the jacket hood pulled up over a hat or if the birds were just hunkering down in the cold.
