So there are, so far, no crocuses, no daffodils, no chirpy birds or buds on the trees.
And it is 39 degrees out (so the snow is melting, but slowly). More snow is, in fact, expected Friday and Saturday.
But the guy who sells silver jewelry to the college kids outside is back today. So clearly, it's spring.
In the words of my friend and former coworker, "Ah, the harbingers of spring: Hippie Birkenstock Silver Jewelry Guy."
