Spring is Here!

Today is the first official day of spring, so I am taking the time to welcome the non-deepfreeze weather. 

I actually had one of my jug-showers today, and I plan to continue this until I switch to winter mode again.  

For those who don’t know, a jug shower is where I take a two litre juice jug full of warm water, stand in my bathtub and have a “shower” by: pouring water over me, lathering up, and then rinsing off. 

The other nice thing is that I am able to keep water liquid in Wanda. This means I can use my 6 gallon jug for potable water storage and dispensing. 

This is a nice thing, as it means less and less for me to tuck under the covers with me at night. Some night soon, I may actually not have my iPad and phone under the covers with me. 

The real sign of spring is this . . . 
   

This is a big deal because I can not only see the curb but I can park next to it. 

Why is this important? This is important because it means my butt is being shoved less and less into traffic and therefore less likely to be crashed into.

Here is an example of why this matters to me . . . 
   

This is where I parked near work this morning (before the truck moved). As you can see, I am parked so far away from the curb, that a small car could park between it and me. 

This is due to the fact that when the city ploughs the streets they only plough the snow from where cars drive, and then deposit that snow where cars usually park. 

Then the natural freeze thaw cycle takes their toll and then you get snowcrete on the sides of the road, which only: the sun, warm temps and time will get rid of. 

So, I will continue to rejoice in the warming effects of spring (or anti-fall as it seems).

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
