Dancing with a Spring in Your Step

Despite yesterday’s nail-biting finishes and overtime suspense, it’s probably fair to say that most people living in 4-season locations aren’t hoping for an overtime of winter. Spring is officially here: rain, slices of sun and all.

The madness of winter is over.

Now winter is not bad, but when you park your car outside and scrape ice in freezing temperatures every morning, that routine can only be relieved by March 20th and the warmer days that follow. And seeing as it’s Friday, that’s protocol to have some fun. Therefore, a clip from Boy Meets World is in order.

It makes sense, don’t worry.

Today is the first day of Spring, which signifies the transition to warmer weather. People are anxiously yearning for things to get hotter. March Madness has tipped off. Or, as it’s also known, “the big dance” has arrived. Television broadcasters are consistently playing back classic, nostalgic highlights from past tournament games, including the 1990s.

With that, I give you a clip of the starting 5 men (plus its 6th man) of Boy Meets World (a classic ’90s sitcom), dancing to the song, “Hot Stuff.”

Feeny: As smooth as D’Angelo Russell.

Is Today March 20th or April 1st?

The first day of Spring has arrived! Unfortunately, the one and only Mother Nature has apparently been watching re-runs of Ashton Kutcher’s “Punk’d” over the Winter season. In Columbus, Ohio, the high today is expected to be a warm 36 degrees. Fascinatingly enough, there is a discernible difference between a cold 36 degrees and a warm 36 degrees…Anyways, having endured a wintry season full of powerful snow storms and blistering winds, most people around here believe they have earned an early spring, asĀ ‘Punxsutawney Phil’ promised.

The bitterly cold winds I felt getting into my car this morning was a frustrating and instantaneous reminder that Winter still has a few more chills left in her back pocket. For those of us who have been searching through our dressers for the shorts we stashed away months ago, the forecast has put a wet blanket on our coronation of sorts to Spring 2013.

The video below perfectly highlights this feeling, with the roundabout symbolizing Winter and Big Ben and Parliament representing Spring.

So close, yet so far.
