Where is Spring?
The calendar says April 10. The thermometer says 27 degrees. The bright green grass is struggling under an icy white frosting. The daffodil heads are drooping or worse, the magnolia blossoms have turned black and the ground is too hard to even turn. The weather prognosticators are calling for measurable snow later this week. All this while the seventeen-year cicadas are laying in wait. Ahh...the summer of 2007 looks like it will be providing some interesting challenges.
