The calendar may say that today, Tuesday, March 20, 2018, is indeed the Spring Equinox, but looking out the window and watching the weather reports, we are getting a different message!! The "S" word is very prevalent today as the fourth Nor'easter makes it way up the east coast and here in Central Kentucky we are expecting yet another 5-8 inches of the white stuff tonight. And while I know it will be beautiful, I also know it will not last long as the ground has been slowly warming up. Perhaps this one will be the last one ...
It brings to mind a poem I read recently titled "On Melting of Snow in Spring" by Paige Scott
"As I glanced at the last of the snow melting away,
I noticed the bright spring day;
As snow melts away, better days it brings -
Where spring sun shines, and the robin sings."
Hang in there! It is Spring!
