Spring is almost here. Even though it is still hard to tell when you walk outside here in Northern Ohio, what with the still cold temperatures and the ever looming threat of another big snowfall, but the season is drawing closer whether we believe it or not.
Now I’m not saying that the first day of spring in Ohio signifies some magical stop to winter weather. More often than not, it takes until about mid-April for it to feel safe saying that it won’t snow again for awhile, at least not until (hopefully) October. However, every year without fail, the weather does make a change for the better around here and I for one could not be more excited.
The return of spring not only signifies warmer weather and the promise of summer, but also the return of three of my biggest passions in life. Those passions are baseball, turkey hunting, and bass fishing. After a winter of accumulating new gear that the accumulating snow outside prevented the use of and digesting every tiny bit of information available on the subjects, there is nothing better than finally enjoying those passions again.
I’m already counting down the days to when the Cleveland Indians will open the season against the Toronto Blue Jays, to when I’ll be in the woods at 4 in the morning trying to call in a gobbler, and to when I’ll be trying to land another trophy bass.
Spring can’t come soon enough!
