Spring Break(ing point.)
Spring break, 2007, day 4. STILL NO SUN!!!! No, I'm not in Mexico. Nor Florida. I'm in stinking Connecticut, land of the gloomiest spring ever to torment the United States of America.
I lived in CLEVELAND FREAKING OHIO for ten years and never saw a spring this nasty. Cleveland is God's homage to the color gray. Lake Erie ensures that old Sol makes nothing more than a guest appearance every so often to keep NE Ohioans from going insane.
Now Connecticut, in my beloved New England, the land I pined for during 14 long years of separation has turned on me. We haven't seen ONE crocus. Not a hint of a daffodil. Nothing. Rain. Cold. Wind. That's it.
Spring break. Indeed.
