SPRING, of course, is the thing that's so close ... yet seems so far away. There are snow showers and hail forecast for the next two days here in our part of Oregon. Creeks are riding high. I told my cousin in Canada that we didn't just pass through the Ides of March. We passed through the "Tides of March." Lots of people were anxiously monitoring creeks around their homes on the web, due to melting snow and torrents of rain. Facebook serves its 21st century purpose by sending out the question, "How are the roads in your area? Are they flooded yet?" "How deep is the snow on the summit?" "Is it icy on Hwy. 47?"
