Not sure when Spring is scheduled to start? http://www.almanac.com/content/first-day-spring-vernal-equinox I see it is 1:14 AM EST on 20 March so that would make it 12:14 AM CST. I think that means there are exactly 34 days left on the countdown to Spring. So far I haven’t seen a single sign of Spring. And although I heard we had robins stay here all winter not one has been gracious enough to honor me with his presence.
Where I was living before in this tiny little town of 4300 the local newspaper was published on Thursday. Each week on Thursday I would center my blog around the local news. Mostly feel good stuff with the occasional driving under the influence, etc. I already knew all of this stuff because I had a scanner that I listened to that kept me up to date. There is a lot more news where I live now and each day someone is shot or murdered in the Peoria area. Right now the headlines are ‘Search efforts continue for a missing 73 year old man with Alzheimer’s Disease.’ This is happening so frequently anymore. This man has been missing since Sunday and I am sure his family is frantic by now. This brings to mind “The Notebook” by Nicholas Sparks. A beautiful story. I read the book and have seen the movie. Makes me cry every time.
Rain is on tap here today through tomorrow. It is 35 degrees right now. I have a doctor appointment in the morning so I hope it is through raining by then.
All for now. I hope you all have a peaceful day. I am praying that the 73 year old man is found safe.
You all stay safe and be happy!!
