This winter was extremely mild this year and it appears we are going to be having an early spring. Horses are shedding and trees are budding. We hope that we do not have a hard frost, as that could happen, and damage the trees. In the meantime, we enjoyed mild temperature on Saturday for the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade and Spring Fling. The street by The Irma was closed for games forkids and adults alike. There were about 30 entries including the Bagpipers from Billings, Montana. After the parade, we enjoy dinner at The Irma hotel where the Bagpipers were playing.
