Spring?

According to Merriam-Webster, Indian Summer is “a period of warm or mild weather in late autumn or early winter”.

Is there a term for early seasons?  Here in North Texas, we have a lot of early springs (usually February), early summers (beginning in May), late summers (100+ temperatures lasting into early September) and mild winters with just a sprinkling of bad weather and temperatures below 20 degrees F.

The Hen Bit and dandelions are in bloom, there was a robin in our yard last week and today we have the air conditioner on.

It might as well be Spring.

Pearl Harbor Day

December 7, 1941, the day that changed the course of history for the United States.

The vicious attack that killed 2,303 young American men who were not at war united our people to fight a beastly enemy.

My earnest hope is that we have not forgotten the lesson of Pearl Harbor and World War II.
