Spring Has Sprung
Well, it hasn't exactly sprung in to the region. Actually, more like the gradual revelation of the sun after the dissipation of the morning fog is how Spring appeared in Western New York this year. That is not to say there will be no more days of snow before the Memorial Day parades, but I have put the snow blower away for the winter.

It has been the birds; this year in the early morning I have noticed the birds singing and chirping more than previous Spring seasons. Living in the middle of the city, spring is more camouflaged to me than those whose chosen residence allows them to experience a less manufactured environment. Thus, seeing less blatantly the signs of Spring, it could be the bird songs are the most noticeable signs afforded me.

Whatever, Spring is here. It is pleasing and pleasant.
