Day 9.063: Exile #2's Sunday Column #98

Exile #2 writes...

This morning we drove past Hadlock Field, the local baseball stadium, on our way into Portland and I couldn't help remembering how last year they were looking for volunteers to shovel snow off the field in time for the season opener in April. Today, a whole month ahead, things couldn't have been more different. The sun was out, the sky was blue and there was not a patch of snow to be seen.

Yesterday, we spotted signs of growth all over our yard (we'd suspected this might be happening from the snuffling of certain Exiles), and this afternoon, Exile #1 and I even sat out on the deck for a while (I was wearing my winter coat but even so...). We may not safe from the threat of snow quite yet, but it looks increasingly unlikely, and this weekend has been a lovely reminder of what is to come.
