I never thought I'd be one of them. One of those cocky midwesterners with their coat unzipped in the freezing cold, declaring, "What a beautiful day!"
But that's exactly what I did in the school pick-up line this afternoon.
After some truly cold weather, today was a balmy 40 degrees and sunny. Truly, it felt like a taste of spring.
And so it is. I am one of them. So hardened by the cold and the snow that 40 feels like a heat wave. I never thought I'd see the day.
