We dug out the barbecue and lawn chairs, donned some Hawaiian and Mexican style clothing, and stepped out onto the sidewalk in front of our Water Street office this afternoon.
Ignoring the fact that the windchill was driving temperatures to 17 degrees Celsius below the freezing mark, we barbecued some burgers and drew plenty of curious stares from passing motorists.
Spring can’t be far off.
