Sign of Spring #9 is one that wasn't on my potential list but this weekend reminded me of its presence: seeing sunsets. You notice that I didn't say sunsets, I said seeing sunsets. During the last few months, when the sun sets anytime from 4:30-6:30 we aren't really down at the lakefront to catch them, not to mention that 1/2 the time the clouds hide them entirely and the other 1/2 of the time it's too cold! So after we turn the clocks ahead and also when the days are getting longer on their own, sunsets return to a time where we can walk to the lake for a look. This night I almost missed it but just caught it through the trees right near the end. So nice to have cloudless skies and later times for this magnificent daily event.
