Spring is coming -- and we need it
That's a sure sign SPRING is on the way, and I think I speak for everyone when I say we're all ready for the WINTER to end.
While we dealt with near-record amounts of snow and cold days, we never experienced the brief thaws that can make winter more palatable. Since Dec. 1, the temperature in DUBUQUE has reached 40 degrees or higher only six times -- and three of those were during the first four days of December.
Instead, we suffered from day after day of below-zero temperatures that froze pipes, broke water mains and generally made life miserable.
I think we're all ready for spring.
