After the last couple of complex article entries it is time for us to celebrate a little. We have recently learned to pack china and stem ware. We have had this really bad winter and everyone, including myself who likes the winter, is ready for spring. At the writing of this article The Shipping Place has been closed for total of three days due to inclement weather. In the prior 12 years, The Shipping Place had not been closed for two days total due to inclement weather.
Today is the spring equinox. At this point it is time to think back on this harsh winter and look forward to the warmth of spring and summer. In a couple of months we will all be wishing for some cooler temperatures as the heat of summer is having us come unglued. At that point we will be wishing for some cooler weather.
I personally have always said it would be great if we could bottle some of those cold temperatures of winter and let them loose in the summer. The reverse is also true. At this point just sit back and enjoy the season of spring as all our snow and ice melts away. Watching the trees bud and the event of everything turning green is always nice in the spring. It is just a little sweeter this year after our brutal winter.
Welcome to spring! FINALLY
