Inside retail businesses, the inventory is changing. There’s still snow on the ground but swimsuits and colorful skirts, tops, and shorts are finding their way into store windows.
In hardware stores, barbecues are popping up right in front of you as you walk through the doors, as are seed stands.
When I go to work shortly before 7 a.m., and the sun is just appearing above the horizon. And in the evening, it doesn’t fall below the western horizon until almost 6 p.m. Daylight at both ends of the day is wonderful.
