During the four years I lived in Wisconsin, I had a lot of trouble staying awake past 7 pm. I was moody and had very little energy from December through March. I was overjoyed when spring came in April. (March is merely “mud month” in Wisconsin.) April brought longer days, milder temperatures and an awakening earth that cheered my spirits.
I witnessed the most brilliant displays of spring during the four years I lived in Washington, DC.
