This winter has not been a particularly difficult one for us in the Northeast, although February has been colder and stormier than January.
But with temperatures reaching the 50s by the middle of this week, there is the feeling that spring is just around the corner.
We realize that “spring” is a relative term for those of us living on the Massachusetts coast, but undeniably the onset of warmer weather will provide more opportunities to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine after months of being cooped-up amidst our pandemic quarantines.
Spring traditionally symbolizes rebirth and rejuvenation. That thought is especially meaningful in the spring of 2021.
Hopefully, the coming of spring and the availability of mass vaccinations will enable all of us to emerge from our cocoons and allow us to return safely to our pre-pandemic lives.
