Like many of my neighbors, I tried to maximize my outdoor activity this weekend. It was rough, considering the slate of exciting basketball games on the TV, but I managed to run a bunch of errands, walk the dog and rake a few flower beds and even cook some hamburgers on the backyard grill, all while wearing a light jacket.
At some point during the festivities, I spotted a gas can in the garage and wondered -- is it time to winterize that snowblower?
There is an unwritten rule in baseball that you don't talk about a no-hitter in the dugout. It's supposed to be a jinx.
Would it anger the weather gods if I ran a little gas through the snowblower and put it away? We all remember monstrous snowstorms hitting in April -- often around the time of the Brewers' home opener.
At the risk of putting a hex on us, spring is off to a pleasant start in these parts. We've had a pleasant March and the forecast for later this week looks amazing.
Still, I'm reluctant to tempt fate. Anybody else nervous that winter isn't quite over?
