Spring is currently flirting with Colorado, making us all want to rip off the winter coats and cast aside the heavy mittens. Unfortunately Mother Nature is a cruel temptress and still has snow and darkness in store for us. I’m getting pretty surly towards winter this year. Having already powered through months of chilly temperatures, colds, and frozen toes, I’m ready to sport these mitts and fight off the rest of winter. I’ll clear a path for you, Spring, not stopping until I see those daffodils and crab apple blossoms!
