Is It Spring Yet?
Yes, yes it is. Today infact. Happy Spring! Did you welcome the Vernal Equinox with open arms today? Here in Buffalo, NY it's cold, windy and snowy. Not spring-like at all. C'mon Mother Nature!
But to me, it's been spring for awhile now...
The weather people have been saying its spring for weeks. And for them, it's true. Meteorological spring began on March 1st. Weather wise, it wasn't feeling like it then either for me.
But in my heart, I knew it was spring in Buffalo...
Question: So when does spring start in Buffalo, NY?
Answer: When you can get one of these bags filled with Dilly Bars, that's when it's spring! (aka February)
Yes, Dairy Queen. The local announcing of spring in Buffalo NY, the Town of Cheektowaga specifically, for as long as I can remember. Most of the DQ's in the area are go inside, sit down type places now. However, there are a few gems left that are outdoor only. They close up in October and have you out there freezing your buns off in February just to get your favorite frozen treat you've been craving since Halloween. I'm lucky enough to live a 2 minute drive from two of these fine locations =)
So you can see, my spring started nearly 2 months ago. The weather just never got the memo...
