Yes, the calendar says April 1, 2008, but the ice and snow on the roads this morning was a reminder that Nature hasn’t finished with winter just yet. Of course there are advantages to this wild and wacky weather. For instance, the snow pack in the mountains, and the resulting water levels in reservoirs are going to be fantastic this year. Skiing, snowshoeing, and other winter sports will enjoy an extended season. And of course, there will be lots of water to generate hydroelectric power.
Despite all these great advantages, I’m ready for the real spring to please stand up. How about you?
