The first day of riding home without turning on a headlight is always a nice sign of spring. Even if spring is still weeks away.
Sure, the temperature was zero when I pedaled out of the driveway this morning, and the first half-mile from my house was still covered with Friday's loose snow. But by the time I left my office a little after 5 p.m., it was a pleasant 15 degrees and sunny.
Yes, sunny. It was awesome. My hope was restored.
We've almost made it through another winter.
