I did it. Yup, I did it. Pulled up all the snow sticks. It was a beautiful afternoon a few weeks ago, the sun was shining, blue skies, short sleeves and spring was here. For real. I pulled up the white plastic stakes with spray-painted blue tops from the house to the barn and had Miles pick up the rest on the winding driveway. Tossed them in the corner of the corner shed. See you next year. Winter was gone. Goodbye. Good riddance.
And now it’s back. A couple of inches on the ground, still falling. Beautiful. A different type of beautiful from the day I pulled up the snow sticks. We carry on, we persevere. Miles’ spring break. A snow day on spring break.
Big day of racing from Sandown to Tampa Bay Downs. The Saturday Special has it all.
