Hope for Spring

We are basking in unusual balmy temperatures even for North Carolina. Regardless it still feels like winter when it gets dark at 5 PM and daylight reappears after 7 AM. So I dream about spring with the ever increasing daytime hours and naturally warm temperatures.

One sure sign of spring here in the South is The Masters golf tournament. This event is steeped in tradition and is always held the first weekend in April in Augusta, GA. I watched the Masters as a kid with my father and even watched the tournament as an adult before I played golf myself. The tradition is part of being a Southern man.

Yesterday the invitations were sent for the tournament in April 2007. I know this is a stretch but at least there is some official acknowledgment that Spring will come and I am hanging onto it for now.

You should put a 'countdown to spring' on your page.
