The sun shone brightly, as it approached its zenith. The bright blue backdrop of the Earth had only small, intermittent streaks of white as cirrus clouds faded. It was a gorgeous day all around and the sky reflected a portion of it. The wind slowly changed from slight to nonexistent and back, with the air neither too humid nor too arid; it was a beautiful Saturday morning nearing noon. The temperature was warm and the mercury in thermometers continued climbing.
Cars with their windows open lined the streets as people wanted the sweet fresh air to fill their nostrils; it is a savory and intoxicating scent, especially to those who had missed it. Spring had arrived; the last of the winter snow had finished melting.
