We have been lurching back and forth between winter and spring for what seems like an eternity. With this weeks string of sunny warmer days, it would seem that spring has finally won out and kicked old man winter in the butt!
Personally I blame the NHL. With the shortend season, the playoffs are starting about three weeks later than usual, therefore so did spring.
