A preview of Spring

February 20, 2011 § Leave a comment

I’m currently celebrating my first President’s Day long weekend! If I was in Canada, I’d have Monday off as well, with a recently-created holiday called “Family Day”. Sure, it sounds much more made up and less legitimate, but has a sweeter ring to it, don’t you think?

My weekend is already off to a great start. How about that Friday weather? It reached a high of 17 degrees (celcius) in New York yesterday! Some of the things I saw on the street in Brooklyn included:

  1. a man shoveling snow in shorts and a t-shirt
  2. a guy riding his bike while pulling a wheely suitcase alongside him
  3. about 30 kids under the age of 7 on the street after 9pm
  4. many flip flops, Spring skirts, and shorts

I’m glad Canada isn’t the only place that gets this excited about a shockingly nice day in the middle of Winter! I can’t wait for that ‘beer on a patio’ weather.
