Despite winter getting in an last minute early morning blizzard here in NJ, Spring has finally arrived on this 20th of March, 2009. I for one couldn't be any happier. What it means to me is no more getting dressed like an eskimo to go trackside, no more dealing with a biting cold wind while waiting for NJT's train 5725 to arrive in Raritan to complete this winter scene (after all what good is a winter train scene without a train?) or trudging through snow to get that one photo at the North Branch Viaduct on NJT's Raritan Valley Line that only winter can create. From here on out, the temperatures can only go up, at least that is my wish!
