And the Winner of Best Current Season Goes to Spring. No Scratch That. To Winter!
By Caitlin Hawke
Is it just me or is this March madness in sync with the zeitgeist? I mean, just when you were getting ready to call it a season, Mother Nature threw you a curve ball, didn't she? Sort of like Warren Beatty letting us know that "Moonlight" won best picture after we sat through all the "La La Land" acceptance speeches.
Well, pass the mic back to Old Man Winter. He's taking a victory lap for winner of "Current Season." And it looks like the speech might last 'til Tuesday.
If you think it's bad here, the hand-wringing in DC is at an all-time high over the cherished cherry blossoms that have bounded ahead of schedule. So much so that the Washington Post wrote a piece yesterday about the peril the peduncles are in. Washingtonians are watching those blooms so closely you'd think they are mating pandas. (Inside DC joke).
Let is snow, let it snow, let it snow.
