The Last Month of Winter
Double anniversary for, “The At Home Show with Josh Cary and David Bates”
It is my honor to present to you: February, the last month of winter. While it is true that winter actually ends in March, meteorologically speaking, February marks the last month of winter in the northern hemisphere. It also marks the last month of summer in the southern hemisphere.
We have actually had real winter this January past. We’ve had several nights in the single digit range. We have had actual frozen precipitation on more than one occasion. We have experienced real wind-chill. I have heard more than a few people complain about frozen pipes. It is true that our friends in the northern tier states likely chuckle at our collective chagrin associated with the inconveniences of cold weather; we are naturally better suited for warm weather…that is why we live in the south!
February can be a challenging month. While the days grow ever longer and the temperatures increasingly milder, old man winter has yet to fully release his grip. No doubt we will still have an unwelcome visit (or two) from that cold, gray and frozen nemesis from the north. It is assuring to know that the worst of winter is likely past and the emergence of green growth will soon return. You can hear the anticipation in everyone’s voices as we collectively speak fondly of spring’s return.
Another significant return is: The At Home Show with Josh Cary and David Bates. Actually, we returned to the airwaves one year ago. This Saturday marks a double anniversary for Josh and me. It is true that we have now been broadcasting on 650 AM WSM for one year now. What is also true is that this Saturday also marks our 20th anniversary of doing our show together. It is hard to believe that much time has passed…until I look in the mirror.
Josh and I invite you to tune in this Saturday morning, 7-9a. We also invite you to call in: 615-737-9650. Inquires welcome, compliments appreciated, grief tolerated…since 1998!
