As we enter this first week in March there is some to-be-expected snow coming in our forecast, however the focus of this blog is that hope Springs Eternal! This March here in our great Maine Sebago Lakes Region came in like a lamb (barely!)  and I know of no one who would not be okay with March going out like a lamb as well. This is the time each year when we’ve added at least an hour of daylight with more each day, and the sun’s warmth can be felt more regularly despite official winter hanging-on until the 19th of the month, this year. So in just about two weeks it will officially be Spring, with Summer not far behind, and in that spirit here’s a reminder of great things to come, in 2019!
