Oh my, yes. I have to stop every morning now on my way to work and check to see how much new growth is on every tree and bush. Every the seeds in the window sill have finally all sprung to life. YEAAAAA!!!!

I don't think it has arrived in Minnesota yet. Sigh. Now I'm all jealous.

Great List!
My Personal Addendum
1. 59* = catching my kids and the neighbor kids running in the yard in swimsuits (true story)
2. Snakes emerge
3. Can't make kids wear coats to school, even though it's 31* some mornings.
4. Watch at least one fish house fall through the ice every year (you'd think they'd learn)
5. More snakes emerge
6. Bikes litter the lawn instead of sleds and snowboards
7. Dog tracks in mud by the pound
8. Write large check to Park and Rec for summer programs
9. Realize how dirty our screens are on our windows and vow to clean them. Later.
10. Crap. What am I going to get my mom for Mother's Day?
