Ready for springPosted Thursday, March 5, 2009, at 3:57 PM
Everyone I have talked to is ready for spring. I am looking forward to the warmer weather and longer days. Spring seems to make everything a little better.
We had the ice, then we had the snow, and I think we all deserve a little springtime.
Hopefully, it will put us all in a better mood and we will see more friendly smiles as we go out and about.
The clean-up is underway in all of our towns and I think when we get all of the debris out of our yards, we will feel much better.
Hopefully, all of the school children and teachers will get to enjoy a few days of Spring Break and the weather cooperates.
Through the years we have taken a few trips with our grandchildren during spring break but we don't have one planned this year.
Spring officially begins this year on March 20. I hope we can put away our coats and enjoy a little time outside before the mosquito season.
Again I want to thank everyone who took time to answer this month's poll. 51 voters were optimistic that times will get better in 2009; 78 voters think it will get worse before it gets better and nine voters expects things to stay the same with no changes. We'll just have to wait and see.
