UPS guys break out the shorts
"In a welcome sight heralding the end of another winter and the arrival of spring, United Parcel Service men across the nation are breaking out the shorts."
This is the lede from an old Onion article. But on my way to work today I actually saw the UPS guy rocking shorts. And why not? It was over 50 degrees at dawn in Colorado Springs. Snow is disappearing from the city like chip manufacturing plants.
I scrambled up the Incline yesterday, and while it was snowy and slushy, it wasn't icy. I'm not saying spring has arrived, but I'll gleefully accept a brief interlude of warm weather before the forecasted snow of the weekend.
