In a moment, like the flick of a switch, the landscape has been transformed. Only two weeks ago, even in Texas, we had a half foot of snow on the ground. Today, we gasp in the midst of a wildflower explosion.

The harsh, biting wind screaming across the thousand-shades-of-brown has given way to sunlight, warm breezes, and the scent of freshly mowed grass.

With bare skin exposed, the commute home was supercharged by solar powered optimism and a 20 mph tailwind.

Good news, my northern friends, Spring is coming. It just passed by Texas on its way to your town.
