While I enjoy each season of the Southern Appalachian year, spring is my favorite, or at least the one I most eagerly anticipate. The excitement and challenges of winter stimulate me, but also wear me down at times. The first snow I eagerly greet, and the second and third, but from the tenth to the twentieth my appreciation is more and more heavily tinged with weariness. I yearn for the first bluebird of the season and the first warm breezes to break the chill that lingers over Greasy Creek.
