February is nigh finished. To me the end of February always means the worst of winter has passed. Hours of daylight are bearable. -30 days are rare.
Of course that isn’t true. March is still a winter month. While the highs crest 0 often, the lows are not yet above freezing. And traditionally there is even more snow in March than other winter months. March is a frustrating month as each sunny day that hints at spring can be followed by more winter.
It is a horrid month for potholes. For freezing rain. And general grey skies.
April is the start of spring, but depending on the year can still feel like winter more often than not.
But the sun rises at 7:30 am and sets at 6 pm tomorrow. That is pretty cool. It feels as though the worst of winter is done.
