On your mark!
It may not really feel like spring yet around here -- there's still plenty of snow around -- but the calendar says it's spring and, dammit, we're doing spring things! I have spotted motorcycles, scooters and sportscars on the road, people out raking their yards (the ones with the southern exposure), and lawnmowers beginning to emerge from garages and sheds. Mind you, the lawnmowers aren't actually needed at present -- the grass isn't even green, much less growing -- but it's time to prepare and be ready.
Maybe a brigade of lawnmowers at attention would scare away the forecasted snow!
