Spring is springing. . . maybe?

Today I am reporting on a seldom seen event: there is a large object in the sky which seems to be giving off heat and light. My library workers say this object is the sun. Old-timers say they recall when several days of sun would precede a season called spring. When asked, the Old-timers said something called flowers (technical term) would appear, the buds (technical term) on the trees would begin to show, and the snow (obnoxious white stuff AND technical term) would disappear. They also recalled grass (technical term) appearing from underneath the snow (oh those technical terms!).

Should this spring really occur, Humans and Animals will be leaping and skipping and hopping about. (Cats, of course, will be doing all this in a Very Dignified manner.) Old-timers will sing songs about “Tiptoeing Through the Tulips” and other fanciful melodies. Everybody look up into the sky and sing a song of welcome!!!

Your weather Repurrter,

Tober

Hi Tober - thanks for the awesome explination! We have that sun thing here right now (though it isn't giving us much heat - it is actually colder today) so it is good to learn about it!!

We don't think we're old enough to remember what this "sun" is. :-/

We really enjoyed your weather report; maybe we'll get to see this "sun" too...eventually.

We remember that. And our trees will have leaves again and we will have the most wonderful time in the trees again. We hope we'll see the sun again very soon.

What a SUN-sational photo! That's a pose that should be hanging on the library wall! And it's still chilly here in Dallas. Our sun hasn't heated up much--yet.
