Spring arrives about noon tomorrow, according to the official charts, and none too soon for us. It was a difficult winter across the nation, with wretched weather along with record snows and low temperatures in some areas. Here in Union County, it wasn’t too pleasant, either, but fortunately we avoided the severe ice – and […]
