February 18, 1994|By PAT ADAMARCZKY

Today, I am officially declaring an end to winter. No more ice. No more snow. I don't care what that scruffy rodent in Pennsylvania predicted. It's over. Mother has spoken.

I'm ready to put away winter coats, boots, snow shovels, melting crystals, and Kitty Litter. It's time to drag out the lawn mower, watch the O's play, and gas up the grill. I need to see green sprouting, growing things again. Right now anything would do: Grass, flowers, even weeds would be appreciated.
