CHARRED OAKS INN ASKS IS IT SPRING YET?!
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!
