As the world turns  

Finally, spring is a season-in-the-making. It seems to be the time of year that everyone talks about, certainly one of the best things about Colorado. The days are getting longer and warmer, but just a short trip to the mountains can bring the snow, and fond thoughts of winter, right back.

    What's best about spring? It's a time of renewal. After going through a winter in Colorado, it's good to see buds come out and color returning to the landscape.

    Is spring different here from other places you've lived? I grew up in California, where everything is always colorful and green, and you take it for granted. You appreciate green a lot more when you don't have it all the time.

    What will you do to take advantage of spring this year? Ride my bike more.
