The answer is, “When it’s the band warming up for Def Leppard.” Yes, spring makes us all wistful, and the prospect of crocuses coming up took me back to 1983. Def Leppard were coming to town on the Pyromania tour, and the warm-up band was, you guessed it, Krokus. That was, of course back when I looked good sporting a black concert t-shirt.
With 2012 being the “Year Without a Winter”, folks recently have been talking of crocuses motivating buyers and sellers to kick start the spring market. Some look back fondly to those days of yore when competing offers and speedy deals were the norm. The market may never look that good again, and I have resigned myself to the fact that I’ll never again look good in my sleeveless Billy Squier t-shirt.
Still, the Newton market is heating up, and that may be enough to have us look back on this spring fondly one day.
