Signs of spring

In no particular order, ignoring the snow day today and the half a foot of fresh snow on the ground. Thanks to Patti for the updates!

  1. Daylight saving time. It’s now light what seems like late into the evening, and it’s only going to get lighter later from now on through mid summer.
  2. Snowdrops. Spotted yesterday (before the snow) at the sunny side of our house.
  3. Festifools is only a few weeks away. Giant puppet parades in downtown Ann Arbor !
  4. March 16th is St. Urho’s Day, where we celebrate St. Urho chasing the grasshoppers out of Finland to save the grape crop. (Truly.)
  5. Ann Arbor’s giant LEGO event Brick Bash is March 29 at Skyline HS.
  6. Patti’s birthday!
  7. The 52d Ann Arbor Film Festival, March 25-30 at the Michigan Theater and the UMMA Helmut Stern Auditorium.

The biggest sign of spring is that it’s possible to ignore the snow day. What’s 6 inches of snow between friends when it’s likely to melt in the next few days?
