What a day!

It was freezing rain, or was it sleet? Either way, it was cold, it was windy, it was wet. And oh the aching arms and back muscles after scraping the snow off the car and the ice from the car windows. But what should we expect in mid-February? We've been spared the white-knuckle drives to and from work so far this winter. Once safely inside, the ice-laden trees made for a pretty sight. And seeing any broken limbs or fallen trees en route made us appreciate how fragile trees may be when pelted by ice.

It was also a day for dreaming of warmer times. Fortunately, it's time for "pitchers and catchers.'' That's a term of art for us baseball fans. Yes, spring training time is upon us. Read the sports pages or catch a report on the radio or online and there's news from Florida and Arizona. Who cares if it's usually just a puff piece of little consequence. It feels so good, so warm, so bright and so unlike our morning in snowy-icy-rainy New Jersey.
