Countdown to spring: Seven awesome things about spring

View Comments(1)


Despite the light blanket of snow left on our lawns in Connecticut early this morning, spring is coming. It’s almost here. I can feel it! Yesterday, in my rush to get to my car after work, I didn’t put on a coat, and I didn’t immediately turn into an icicle. Progress.

We are so excited about spring that we’re literally counting down the days. Let it be known that in exactly one week — that’s seven days, counting today — it will be spring. And we will wear our spring clothes, even if that means we get frostbite.

To kick off our countdown to spring, let’s talk about the best parts of the season! Drumroll, please…

Warm weather

The one’s pretty obvious in that it’s probably the biggest selling point of the season. Spring means we’ve finally crawled out of that dark, depressing, hole that is winter. No more slogging through several feet of snow, yay! Warm weather means you can actually open your windows in your house and venture outside for more reasons than to just get the mail. Not having to step out of my house wearing 10 layers of clothes is also a plus.
