Spring is on its way


Around 8 a.m. on March 8, the tree on the southeast corner of the Howard County Courthouse was filled with robins. About 20 of them came and went for several minutes. Several other locals have seen robins as well.
The old wives tale says the robin will have its tail snowed on three times before spring. Although it is not an actual fact, we Mid-westerners like to have something to look forward to after a long, cold winter. The calendar says the first day of spring is next Tuesday, and it is about the six-week prediction mark of spring by the groundhog. With that triple whammy, it’s a sure bet spring will be here in the next two months! Bring on the flip-flops!
