Has Spring Sprung in Boston?
Spring in Boston (if it ever arrives) is fleeting at best each year and generally long overdue so it is with a bit of trepidation that I write that Spring has arrived. However, this past weekend which had temperatures in the mid-50s and was filled with sun really put Spring front and center in my mind. I spent Saturday afternoon sipping bloody mary's with a few friends at the Tremont 647 bar looking out on to Tremont Street, and could not help but notice all the people out enjoying the weather.
More over, this was not the first weekend in Boston which saw the mercury rise above the 50 degree mark. Boston still does not have any trees in bloom (the photo is wishful thinking on my part) and we are likely to encounter more winter weather before long, but as the length of days continues to progress it seems like we might be able to say goodbye to Winter and greet Spring with open arms.
