spring fever

It's 45 degrees out now and sunny with cotton-candy clouds and the pale of the northern sky behind. I have my window open at work and can hear the traffic shooshing by on the wet street. We're almost to 7 hours of sunlight now, and adding another hour every 10 days. There is a special smell I remember from the autumn that's back in the air. I started calling it the "Iceland smell". It's smells fresh and a bit like new-mown grass, but on a national scale.

There's also a different "Iceland smell" when the wind shifts to blow from behind the horse stables across from my office.
