I once traveled seventeen hours on military transport from Egypt to America, stopping to refuel in Spain and New Jersey before arriving in South Carolina. I was one of the last in Egypt and was busy with the pack out until the end. Everything was fraught with delays and we were all tired after being in the field in Egypt in July and August. In SC, we had to unload and see my crypto safely stored. I finally got home and felt tired, hungry and exhausted after being up for about 36 hours, running on cat naps and coffee.
That's how Spring looks today. Spring looks like it's had a long trip and it wasn't pleasant. Spring looks like it needs a few days of rest and a long, hot shower, and maybe a few cups of coffee, too, before taking center stage.
Spring's arrival struck me as anti-climatic, like seeing one person when you're hoping for an army. This is it? Really?
The wind is cold, no sun is making its presence known. The cold drizzle has ended but the sky looks like dirty bath water.
Back in Atlanta, my friends are complaining about the pollen. The weather has been in the 80s there and everything is in bloom. Things are blooming here but it's a haphazard, feeble effort. As I say, Spring needs some coffee.
The forecast looks better for tomorrow. 100% chance of precipitation but a projected high of 68. Hello, Spring.
