I have seen the spring

I was walking down the street the other day when I was taken aback by an exciting sight. It was a red-breasted robin, and it is the harbinger of spring. The weather has warmed, and the snow is melted and gone, but weather can be treacherous. For example, there is a snow fall likely to come this weekend during the freshwind conference. But the presence of the robin says "don't be fooled by a random snow storm. Spring is truly here, and this flitty brown thing with the spot of red is your sure sign."

I like the spring. Bit muddy, but it kicks winter's ass for certain.
