  • Spring is in the air, but that's not all

    Spring is in the air, but it's not the only thing.  The weather in Eastern North Carolina these past few weeks has been glorious.  It makes me want to shake off the sleepy sluggishness of winter, bask under the bright blue sky, dig in the garden, cook out on the grill, throw open the windows.  Except for one thing.
