So what's the next one? "Spring." Which is ironic to write about as we're now sliding into winter. The Vernal Equinox will be March 20, 2019 at 12:58 P.M. Pacific Standard Time (3:58 P.M. Eastern Standard Time). That is the day when there should be about 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night (I assume that's why it's called an "equinox").
Spring has good and bad. The good: the roads clear up and I can take my snow tires off and drive my car like it's meant to be driven. It gets warmer so don't have to wear a coat anymore, nor get snow and slush all over your shoes. Trips to Seattle aren't marathons of snowy driving anymore.
The bad? Allergies. My allergies aren't as bad now as before I did seven years of allergy shots. But some times the pollen just overwhelms and I sneeze and itch and sneeze some more. One time before allergy shots (BAS), someone told me if you sneeze ten times in a row, you'll die. I proceeded to sneeze eleven times in a row. I didn't die.
Or maybe the prompt has to do with bouncy springs? I don't know.
What do you dread or look forward in spring? Let me know in the comments below.
