Spring in sight?

Earlier, the official cherry blossom peak bloom forecast was released. As of now, the blossoms are expected to be at their best and brightest April 4 – 9, just in time for the Cherry Blossom Festival. The parade this year will be on April 9th, followed as always by the Sakura Matsuri (Japanese street festival). It’s cold out now, but spring will come and make DC beautiful.

    They had DeFeo, the horticulturalist, on WTOP last night as I drove home. The guy sounded absolutely drunk, and basically admitted to picking the date off the calendar at random.

    The guys over at the wildly popular Capital Weather [http://www.capitalweather.com] blog are predicting temperatures 10 degrees lower than normal for the next two weeks or so, and possibly another snow event. Spring isn’t in sight just yet!

    Well, great. More cold. That’s what I get for trying to be optimistic. *sigh*

    Sakura Matzuri is awersome. The best festival I’ve ever seen.
    The spring goes on
    The love did not die
    The fear has gone.
