Winter is not the best season. Though there are good thing–snow is beautiful, cold can actually be nice, hot chocolate, snowmen, snowshoeing, Christmas, etc.–in February winter is dark, cold, and depressing. There isn’t any light. You can’t go outside for long periods of time.
But now, finally, after the the snowiest winter I can remember, the snow has melted. The days are longer. It’s ugly outside–muddy and yellow–but there is a feeling in the air that lifts my spirits up. My large winter coat is staying in my closet. I can even take off the jacket I have and pretend that it’s warm, really warm.
Spring is almost here! I am rejoicing! Winter is sometimes hard–it just is dark and depressing, but then spring comes. And I am going to go frolic!
