We are back to the cold and snow, but later this week they say temperatures will rise above freezing again. So we are into that phase of the season when spring starts fighting with winter to take over. I am not fond if this period because one starts to get a taste for spring and then winter briefly returns. Even when spring is taking the lead it can be miserable, with slush and ice forming, and all the snow banks turning black with grime. However, there is one thing we can count on - the battle always ends with spring triumphant.
