January Thaw

It is warm. Saturday it was in the 50s and yesterday and today the 40s. It’s rainy and the trees are sodden, the earth smells like spring.

But it is not. It is a tease, this thaw. I’d rather have the snow, the cold and get it over with. I don’t want spring in January. I want the ground to crunch beneath my feet and I want to know that spring is in the future.

The water in the barometer rises. Weather is coming.
