Spring has (sort of, perhaps, hopefully) started to arrive here in North Carolina. The entire country is definitely due some sunshine! For those of you who are still suffering through the cold and snow, turn on your radios at the highest (legal) limit… Maybe, that will help the snow melt.
Otherwise, we’ll keep hoping that the APB out on Puxataney Phil will work. Until next month…..
