I have seen more Facebook posts, tweets, Instagram snapshots, and internet articles about winter than I care to any longer. Are you with me, Louisville? I don’t want to see another shot like this one: 

Of snow…or ice…or a car stranded on the side of I-65…or another text alert that JCPS is CLOSED. Good grief, where is spring? She’s coming. We’re beckoning.
