Unbelievable! Northern Wisconsin from one week to the next is truly unbelievable, except for the fact that it is happening throughout our nation’s SparkCommunity. We hit a record high of 52 degrees F today and what once was gorgeous snow, is beginning to prepare the ground for rebirth.

Even the heating plant that feeds the university campus is already sprouting green grass along its mile-long pathway . . . a path that is notorious for showing flowering dandelions before the remnants of snow have vanquished.
Maybe, just maybe (fingers crossed), we’ll have green leaves on trees come commencement time. I think I hear an extended vacation ringing at my door before the cold returns. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28)
Boogie, Boogie! I hope you, too, are able to celebrate all seasons!
