Anything Can Happen: Hope

This is the time of year that we here in Maine tend to fall into two distinct categories...

1- The winter snow enthusiasts who are energized by each new snowfall and eagerly strap on their skis, snowboards, or snowshoes and head out to enjoy the new fresh snow.

2- The rest of us who wearily put on our boots, coats, and mittens and pick up the shovel and begin yet again to shovel out a driveway or walkway or unbury our cars and dream of a spring that has yet to show us its signs.

March is the turning point... on the occasional lucky year the snow is slight and gradually fades away. Other years it is just another winter month of snowstorms and weather watches.

So, I know we can't build it.
But maybe if we can see it, it will come?
