Springing forward

I decided not to watch the second half of Wisconsin's loss to Ohio State in the finals of the Big Ten Conference basketball tournament Sunday afternoon. There will be dozens of games to watch the next three weeks. Instead, I headed out to take care of a couple of errands.

The temperature was only in the mid-50s, but it was such a pleasant, sunny day that I found myself pushing the spring season a little. I opened the car's "moon roof" and let the fresh, crisp air whoosh around me for a while.

OK, it might have been a bit cool for that, but it was a refreshing change to the cold and snow we experience the past couple of Sundays. Besides, if we now must push our clocks forward in March, why not try the same with the calendar?
