The Power of Sunshine

Those sun rays feel so good!  But right now it’s snowing.  Again.

But I’m onto this snow.  I know that it will be over soon.  This next weekend is supposed to be full of lovely weather.  Is it too early to start planning out the next weekend?  Of course, the forecast will probably change a dozen times before the weekend actually gets here.

Last Thursday, we had the first glimpse of sunshine after a week of clouds and snow.  I woke up feeling a bit grumbly about having to drive on slick streets on the way to work (again).  And then I saw the sun peeking out.  By the time I left for work, the sun was in full force, the streets were wet, not icy, and I was giddy.

It’s funny to think about the impact that a little sunshine has on my world. 

I grew up in the Midwest, where winters are gray.  After many years here in Colorado, I have become spoiled with over 300 days of sunshine a year.  I start to have withdrawal after too many cloudy days.

This weekend had brief moments of sunshine and warmth, and then the clouds and wind would come out.

But spring is really here.  It’s under this layer of snow.  It’s behind those clouds.

And that sunshine will feel so good!
