We’re calling it. Spring, it appears, is springing.
That doesn’t mean that we won’t get a couple inches of snow, ice, or sleet before things warm up for good around here. Chances are, we will, but it sure feels like springtime lately in Northwest Arkansas.
Just look at the signs. The Diamond Hogs have already taken the field. We’re just a few weeks from St. Patty’s Day and Spring Break. Plus, the Fayetteville Farmers’ Market opens April 7.
So we may be a little bit early in considering it spring, but as long as we keep having these sunny 60-degree days, we don’t care what you call it. It’s awesome.
Here’s what’s new from our sponsors this week.
