Springtime! It’s here! Oh, ignore all that mud and rain and frigid nighttime temperatures– there’s green out there! While shopping yesterday, the daughter and I spotted a plethora of limousines in town.

Look what we discovered crawling around our yard after the flood. It was a nice surprise. Today’s local news stories are loaded with stories about the yesterday’s flooding.
