Twenty years ago today an April Fool’s Day blizzard dumped snow up the East Coast from Maryland to Maine. My region, Eastern Massachusetts, got the worst of it with a whopping 34 inches. I remember it well because my school district declared a very rare triple snow day! That storm was no joke (pun absolutely intended).

Today on April 1 it isn’t really looking very spring-like out my window, but I guess I should at least be grateful that there isn’t a full blown blizzard right now. The whole snow day thing is really great as a kid, but now I’m just itching for show season to start. I’m super jealous of everyone in areas whose season has already started — and I’m particularly envious of those at Galway Downs right now with that gorgeous California scenery, lovely California weather, and, oh, FOOD TRUCKS.
