There's no place like home! There's no place like home!!
It's spring here in the 'boro, and springtime anywhere makes me miss Upstate NY. Spring and Fall are my favorite time back home in Ithaca. (Of course, spring doesn't happen up there for another month or so!) When the last cold snow melts and the earth begins to warm and the birds begin to sing and the trees begin to bud ... there is nothing like hiking in a gorge or splashing in a waterfall. The vineyards should be kicking into high gear and Ithaca Beer should be starting production of Partly Sunny -- the best beer ever! I haven't been home in over a year, and I miss it. Of course, the eternal warmth of the South is rather appealing ... But nothin' replaces home.
