Spring is coming to Brevard, North Carolina.
This past weekend another winter storm hit the country. I have lost track of the name of the storm because there have been so many this year. Living in the mountains of North Carolina does not exempt us from cooler weather and snow. While we have not had nearly as much as my friends in Iowa have had this year we have had a couple of times when the snow covered the driveway and I opted to just stay home.
Our driveway is long and steep. Even though I have a Subaru Outback I have become a wimp driving in the snow and ice in North Carolina. If I don’t have to go out I won’t.
But spring is coming to North Carolina and after a recent dentist appointment I stopped for a walk at Silvermont Mansion.I was happy to see that the flowers are popping, the leaves are budding and the backdrop is changing from brown to green. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, like spring.
My nose and sinuses are also alerting me to the arrival of spring. I can cope with the seasonal allergies if the result is the glorious display of colors that are just beginning to make their appearance across the area.
Is spring coming to your area? Are you as anxious as I am?
