Musings [131 words]

I don’t have it all in front of me presently, but I believe this has been the 8th day of March where the sun has been visible at sunrise. The date today, is March 9th. If correct, that means there has already been as many visible sunrises this month as there were in February or January.

Additionally, daylight savings time begins tomorrow, which means I get an hour back in the morning so long as I continue to get up at the same time. It’ll be a good opportunity to pick some destinations that require a little more time commitment.

Even though another snow storm is coming tonight, I believe this all means spring is coming. And as much as I love winter, my favorite season is the season of change.

Fuel more Sunrises

There is plenty more to come from Year of the Sunrise. You can always add a cup of coffee to keep me going strong in the mornings, or a tank of gas to get me to some new places, as the sun keeps rising.
