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.

It pains me deeply to say that I totally get this...but I do.

Hey! Forty degrees is sweatshirt weather around here. And if the sky is blue, so much the better! (Remember when we thought 60 degrees was a cold day in California? Hah!)
