It feels different to walk outside these days compared to what it was like before. It's defiantly getting warmer to the extent that you sometimes no longer need a hat or gloves. Birds and ravens cross the sky, twittering and calling. Slight green starts emerging and as the snow melts, wonderful puddles and routes of water are created. People no longer retreat to their warm homes but rather prefer to dawdle on the streets outside for fresh air. Spring is nearly here.
