It was a heat wave here in Maine today.
We even opened the windows to air the house for the first time this year.
It was a lovely 43 this morning and now on the porch it is 63 degrees.

The first real day of Spring is like the first time a boy holds your hand.
A flood of skin-tingling warmth consumes you, and everything shines with a fresh, colorful glow,
making you forget that anything cold as harsh as winter ever existed.  ~  Richelle E. Goodrich
