Me: We got off to a good start today. We're already to Hartford, and on a normal day we'd be dropping the kids off at school around now.
Mrs. Borepatch: On a normal Saturday, we'd be asleep around now.
About right, that.
As we've headed south, we've been heading forward in time, or at least in climate. At first the trees are bare and grey. Then the first shadow of green. The odd willow tree, always the first to leaf out. New York City is almost green.
We've been seriously deprived of Spring this year. The lovely but seasonally affected Mrs. Borepatch is almost giddy at the thought of warm weather and blossoming shrubs.
