There are two indications that Old Man Winter is packing his bags for awhile.
First, after two night sweltering under our down comforter, I put our lighter comforter on. I was actually cold last night, but it's better than trying to sleep with heat stroke.
Second, Jameson has stopped staying with us at night. He only stays when it's cold. His choice. When he starts finding someplace else to sleep at night, the tide has turned.
The most obvious joyous harbinger of spring hasn't appeared yet. The ##@*&!! ants. they are welcome to stay away.
