With temperatures dipping to the 20s this week, Greensboro will be lucky if tree fruits aren't affected. We wanted to sneak in another photo of blossoms before they are gone. It is not uncommon for Greensboro to see ice storms as late as the ACC Basketball Tournament (currently underway). Old Man Winter was hardly around this year; to see him return in mid-March, with the spring equinox only four days away, seems pretty cruel. Unfortunately, the ACC Tournament is not in Greensboro this year. The tournament, born in Greensboro, is scheduled to return here in 2020. Let's all start planning ahead and show fans and players how wonderful it is to play basketball here. Perhaps we should fill the Coliseum with blossoms!
At any rate, the blossom photo proves the blossoms were beautiful in Greensboro this year. If you like to take this kind of nature photography, The National Park Service is predicting cherry blossoms in Washington, D.C. will reach peak between March 19-22. This pesky cold weather is delaying their arrival, which was originally anticipated to be March 14-17. Perhaps we should count our blessings that we have blossoms and time to enjoy them, regardless of when they come our way. Happy Thursday.
