She's trying. Despite our efforts to keep it ugly, Mother Nature is indeed trying to make it nice around here again.
Today it was in the 50's, the sun was shining and the last of the dirty snow patches have finally melted away. Also, the birds are coming back, there's signs of greenage and buds on the trees, and I saw my first motorcycle on the road today.
Now - if everyone would just pick up all the garbage the winter melt has left behind we could begin moving on with our spring.
I can understand that junk gets buried under the snow during the winter. I can understand how it gets collected by the snowplows and pushed up against the curb. And - I can understand that eventually the snow melts and the crap is left behind.
But what I can't understand it how anyone or any business can just leave it there, rotting in the gutters and on the sidewalks as if we were in the middle of a New York City refuse strike! Uggh.
Come on people - I'm trying to have a Spring here!
