The Signs of Spring

1. The weather in Colorado is all fucked up. It's simultaneously windy, cloudy, sunny, raining, too warm for jackets but too cold for shorts.

2. The bums are molting. The sidewalks are littered with ratty old jackets and jeans, left where they were shed like a snakeskin.

3. The mallards are horny. A few blocks' worth of my walk to school are on the Cherry Creek trail. As I walked today, I watched the drakes fighting each other, chasing their rivals away from the ducks. It was quite amusing.

Oh, and there's like, y'know, leaves and flowers and shit.
