Signs of Spring

After the snowiest winter on record, signs of spring finally arrived this weekend.

At Virginia Highlands Park in Pentagon City on Sunday, the county’s snow melter sat idle as 60 degree weather ate away at the monstrous piles of dirty snow surrounding the parking lot.

Soccer, football, tennis and basketball were all being played, with most of the participants emboldened enough by the mild temperatures to ditch their jackets and track pants for shorts and t-shirts.

Squirrels scurried about, digging for acorns and heading for high tree branches when one was found.

It’s a scene that’s sure to be repeated, with sunny days in the mid- to low-sixties predicted for much of the week.
