Also, it's another gorgeous day in the Nation's capital. So I'm feeling mighty chipper. It's as if it were spring. In fact, this Saturday is Imbolc which is, of course, our shot at an early spring in the event that it's cloudy:
"If Candlemas Day be fair and bright,
Winter will have another flight;
If on Candlemas Day be shower and rain,
Winter is gone, and will not come again."
