Spring has Sprung
Weeping cherries, redbuds, tulips, and a dozen other spring blossoms have burst onto the scene this week making Lexington a beautiful place to live. Unfortunately, the road crews have also popped up around town. It is important to give ourselves little extra time for that commute. Leave early and enjoy the blossoms along the way.
The crews may still be working when you get off in the evening. Look out for them. It is a hard, dirty, dangerous job made more dangerous by rushed drivers. This season, lets make sure all of them get safely home to their families by slowing down when they are on the road. Better yet, take a break on the way home. I drive Alumni which makes the construction a great excuse to stop and take a walk at the Arboretum after work.
We have a great park system in town. No matter what side of town you're on, there are lots of beautiful places to stop and enjoy the spring sunshine. Slow down and take advantage of it while it last. Before you know it those sultry August days will be back.
