Buh-bye to winter, that is. For the time being. Though “past performance is no guarantee of future results,” and there’ll be chilly weather ahead, I believe we have rounded the bend, at least nominally, with the recent vernal equinox. I didn’t intend this close-up of my frosted window screen to look like the bars of a jail — I don’t really feel that way about winter — but that could be one interpretation.

This is the year I had the foresight to have my neighbor’s 1969 Ariens snowblower tuned up, and I drafted it as a reliever to mine —  because snowblowers always break. That’s what they do. Prophetically, it soon became the “starter,” and has worked like a charm. So far.

Now I guess all I can say is, “Wait ‘til next year.”
