Spring is springing!

I've put away my headlamp. Morning runs are after sunrise. Evening walks are by full moon, and by the next new moon, it will be light at night by sunlight.

Linden has decided to rise with the sun, so I now wake up like this:

I don't recall whether 6:30 a.m. is a normal time to see daylight for the Silicon Valley. I do remember (and treasure the memory of) driving Eastbound to my 7 a.m. classes at Santa Clara University, and watching the sun rise. It was glorious. That must have been in winter, because I'm sure that the sun is up by 6:45 a.m. in California in spring and fall.

We got 2-3 inches of snow in the wee hours of yesterday morning, and I shoveled my driveway carelessly last night, knowing that I was NOT Laying The Foundation for Shoveling for the Following Six Months. And temperatures are still cold. -10F/-23C in the mornings and evenings. I don't mind. More skiing for me!

Love waking up to a happy cuddly doggie!
