Spring in Snowstorm Region

Spring snow

In class, students keep saying, hopefully, "We should be hearing the spring peepers soon." In the meantime, they've been building snowmen on the quad. I'm still wearing mittens, and snowboots, and a winter coat. I woke up this morning to yet another six inches of snow on my backstep.

The spring peepers are out here, along with jonquils and firebush and forsythia and tulip trees. And there was 8 inches of snow close by a couple of days ago too. One of our writers called this little Arkansas extra the Daffodil and Snow Tire Festival and the name has stuck for more than 40 years now. ... We've had several rounds of snow and warmth the past few weeks. ... But you - and we - will achieve real spring any minute now.
