Spring, finally?!

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

The past couple days have been deceptively nice and warm! Blue skies and all that sunshine! This is a great consolation given the long winters that mark this part of the world. I have seen many hammocks strapped and a lot of students taking to study outside, populating whichever spot by the roadside or beneath the pines that has a dry patch to lie or sit on and with plenty sunshine! Yesterday, I even went for a walk early in the morning! Such bliss! As the semester only has about 3 weeks left, it is finally starting to feel like spring and soon, before we know it, it will be summer!

In case you are looking for a reason to get outside and enjoy the warm up, the St. Scholastica baseball team has their home opener at Wade Stadium tomorrow.

So if you don’t know what Duluth springs are like, they are often characterized by a longer winter season with snow followed by rain and cold weather. This means that many spring, outdoor sports have to fight the weather to be able to play outside. For the St. Scholastica softball team, the tarp is an essential piece to help keep the field dry in order to play more games outside during the spring season. When I played softball at CSS, there were many games we had to play down in the cities in sports domes which made for a lot of traveling! If you are considering to become a member of a spring sport, just be ready to be flexible! We always had to keep in close communication with out professors to let them know if we were traveling or not and what our softball schedule was going to look like each week!

About a week ago, I had a wonderful hike in the woods and felt like I was finally getting a Duluth Spring experience, which is pretty rare! Within a few days, the weather turned sour and up to now, I can’t make anything out of it. Its snowing and the grass is slowly drowning in a thin white coating. Spring?
