Signs Of Spring
Signs of spring are often limited to the birds chirping, kids graduating, living being in the air and well baby animals being born. Those are understandable signs, after all they are the unofficial kick-off of the season. Everyone sees them and acknowledges with great relief that winter is finally coming to an end. The days are even getting lover and daylight savings has begun.
While I will not make the argument that these things are not the signs of spring, as they clearly are. I will make the argument that there are things that show that spring is here and the benefits and flexibility of certain behaviors you may not have recognized as occurring (even if you knew it) when spring comes.
So, for your consideration are the following activities that are also kick-offs of spring!
Roofs And Remodeling
If the winter has been full of rain and snow, you may have come to realize the first of the 3 signs of spring. You see, if your roof was leaking, spring is when all of the contract workers come out of the woodwork and start working on all of those leaky roofs. I know I’ve seen countless ones and if you go to one of those big do-it yourself places, you’ll find that the 2 day wait for a new roof has now turned into a 2-3 week wait. That’s why new roofs are one of those things you may not have realize was a sign of spring.
Along with a new roof comes all of the remodeling projects. Room additions for the new baby or in laws that are coming for the spring. Or maybe it’s that you’ve decided to add a den or remodel the kitchen no matter what your decision, it’s usually spring where you see these signs of construction erupt.
Lastly: Road Construction
I now realize different states do this differently. When I lived in Southern California, when it drizzled it was a rain day and all of the construction workers went into hiding. No roadwork of any kinds was done. It was as if the dark days of winter had swallowed the construction workers up. No buildings were even built. It wasn’t until I moved to two states where most of the year was bad weather that I learned that other places do this differently.
If your in Southern California, you’ll know that this is true. Which is why construction work must be one of the signs for spring coming into place that you may not have thought about. Take time now to look back and see if this is the case in your area and you may just be surprised to find that it is in fact a sign of spring.
