It’s Snow Ball Season!
That’s not a ball made of snow by the way. It’s a phenomena common in these northern climes in which a particular predominant season forces it’s presence onto the activities normally associated with another season. Winter is the perpetrator. Baseball season is the perpetratee.
We’ve had our first genuine taste of Spring this weekend. This causes all kinds of pent up urges to jump into the conscious side of the mind.
For the first time since last Summer it’s warm enough to toss a ball around. So we do. The youngest and me. Our skills are blunt and the ball finds the wet slush almost immediately. It soon becomes wet, cold, and crusty. But it doesn’t matter.
It’s Snow Ball Season. And as far as we know, Spring and baseball are here.
