The sun was so bright today that its reflection in the puddle on the driveway was just a circle of almost blindingly-white light.
The light was so strong that it was impossible to look directly at it - even in the puddle. What a welcome sight after months of frigidly-cold weather and rather dull sunlight.
This is a sure sign that spring is right around the corner. I'm ready...as are most people in Minnesota who have endured a rather brutal winter. (The average temperature from December 1st through February 28th was 9.8 degrees at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. That's the coldest meteorological winter since 1978-79 and the ninth-coldest in records going back to 1871.)
