2006_01_wv.jpgLast night Gothamist had a dream. It was a beautiful dream. We dreamt of many wonderful things. Most importantly we dreamt we had slept until the first day of Spring. When we awoke in our dream it was warm and there was a chance of thunderstorms in the air. When we awoke for real this afternoon it was foggy, warm and there was a chance of thunderstorms tonight.

Could our dream have come true? Might we also be getting a pony that flies? Alas, our computer said it was January not March, even though the weather is much closer to that of late-March. The fog will be around until it is replaced by rain this evening. The unusually warm weather will be around through Saturday, when rain again looks likely. The warmth may return next week.
