“Hint of spring showing up in upcoming weather pattern”

above is quote from our online paper

at this point in the year

i was really hoping for something more than just a hint. 

seems like a burlesque version of a weather forecast to me

all optimistic style and not much substance.

after giving examples and explaining their reasons,

the article wrapped up with:

“This isn’t a permanent pattern change to feeling like spring. After the weekend we have temperatures dropping back to feeling like winter. If you add 10 to 20 degrees on, it won’t be too cold. It might remind you of spring. Time is on your side if you need spring. Just keep hanging in there.”

 

“one can never produce anything as terrible and impressive

as one can awesomely hint about.”

march on.

Standard

march of the sugar plum corgis.

december days were brief and chill,

the winds of march were wild and drear,

and, nearing and receding still,

spring never would, we thought, be here.

gettin’ jingy.

Standard

the big guy checks out the situation.

“Groundhog found fog. New snows and blue toes.

Fine and dandy for Valentine candy.

Snow spittin’;

if you’re not mitten-smitten,

you’ll be frostbitten!

By jing-y feels spring-y.”
