From where I am writing this post I can see the tops of the trees and the sky.
My sister-in-law and hub took down the sheer curtains from the windows to the balcony at the Beltway apartment, and that seemed to open up the whole place.
An hour ago there was sun, and now the sky is lightly clouded and a mere dusting of snow falls onto the balcony wall.
Spring just can't seem to break through yet. :(
