"Daylight saving time: Only the government would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket, sew it to the bottom, and have a longer blanket." - Anonymous

Last weekend's blast of winter (captured beautifully by Cortney Torres in the photo of the Pequest River above) ushered in some frigid temperatures, but the mercury will return to normal by the weekend, so allow us to coax you out of hibernation mode by tempting you with the following events! It's not every day one can witness Maple Sugaring, take in some Irish music, and cheer on a St. Patrick's Day Parade, so let's go! Read on for all that and more, and don't forget to set those clocks ahead before hitting the hay on Saturday night! Happy Wanderings!
