Spring is almost here!

Posted on: February 13, 2008 3:58 pm
Spring is just about here, for me, when I first feel true warmth in the air outside for the first time in the new year. It's such a great feeling. I wonder what others feel is the first sign of Spring coming. Other signs to me are:

...The crocus and the tulips begin to poke through the ground.

...Grass is showing the first signs of life at the base of the plant.

...Winter wheat resumes it's very rapid growth.

...The robins have returned.

...CSF starts blogging about the SI swimsuit edition (The inspiration for this blog, actually.)

...The Pro Bowl has finally been played.

...Thoughts of March Madness become much more frequent.

...Spring scrimmages are being set in college football.

...The NBA trade deadline is nearing.

...CSF is still blogging about the Swimsuit magazine.

I wonder when others here are first beginning to think about spring. Perhaps the very best time of the year for me!

Spring is almost here!

Hey WUs~~!

Not sure how much I care about CBS anymore. For more than a year they valued me as one of their top 10 members.

In less than a week CBS has made it clear that my value to them has plunged and I am now one of their top 1000 members.

I don't care about the top 10 rating, what hits me is how much CBS is tellling me my value to them has dropped within days.

I hear them Loud and Clear.

For some reason they are telling me my value to the site has dropped substantially. They would prefer I go away.

I will certainly keep CBS in my top 1000 sites. I know they do not care if I visit or not.

I will see you around.

Hey CSF!!  Glad you could stop by again my good friend.

I agree, your Buffs are doing a lot of right things, and the recruiting class is very encouraging.  There should be much optimism in the air at Boulder.  Really good to see Colorado getting back on track.

As for the CBS site.  The changes made recently seem very arbitrary and highly manipulative.  It is no longer nearly as fun to be here anymore.  Can't figure out why they wanted to shake things up like they did.  I hope you can hang around a while longer, as I just can't believe they'll let it stand.  It makes no sense.

Always great to see you around!

Hey Buddy!! Great blog!

I have lost much interest in CBS as of late. While the old system had its quirks and flaws, I think it was much better than the new system. I am disappointed that the explainations about the new changes are not consistent with the actual changes.

As for college football, the future looks bright for my CU Buffs. I think Dan Hawkins is a very good game day coach and an even better recruiter. Darrell Scott, the top rated HS running back in the nation committed to play in Boulder. Perhaps the best incoming linebacking group in the nation as well.

Take care buddy,

Always great too see you around.

Hey vikings!!

Good to see you my friend!

Snow is really quite a dilemma.  Absolutely beautiful when it first falls, but an unending pain as the days go on after the initial snowfall.  Shoveling, slipping, sliding, wrecks, etc.  Snow is a lot of work to deal with.

We're fortunate.  We rarely see a deep snow and good ol' Sol does a lot of the work, most of the time.

Glad you stopped by!

Hey Joakim!!

60 degrees is spring for us my friend.  80 degrees signals the beginning of summer.  But our wind chills can get down to -15 to -20 degrees almost every year during winter.  So warmth in the air means different things to different people.  Just really depends on what you're used to I suppose.

Good to see you here!

For me its about the time we go back into 80 degree weather. Not this cold 60ish stuff.
