Snow Days


It’s been a long, cold, snowy winter, but, in the words of the poet, “if Winter comes, can Spring be far behind.” For many of us in the East and Midwest, after punishing weeks of arctic cold, repeated snow, and grueling power outages; the (bleakly) hopeful, ostensibly rhetorical, words of the poet become more fully comprehensible. We know that cyclically spring must roll around, but is its arrival, as a season of renewal and rebirth, truly guaranteed? There have been ice ages, and, right now, we feel like we are in one.  

According to the groundhog, there will be no early spring this year, but actually spring can never be early. The official U.S. arrival of spring 2014 is March 20. This date is not based on how much snow or how cold it is, but the number of hours of daylight. March 20 is the first day of spring and also the day when daytime and nighttime will be twelve hours each. From that point on, the number of hours of daylight will increase until the summer solstice, the longest day in the year, when the cycle continues, turning in the direction of shorter days and winter.  

John Coltrane knew the power of music to create realities. He dedicated himself to using that power for good, so no matter what the weather, listening to Coltrane lifts our spirits and places us in the most sublime of climes.

As one of America's oldest cities, Philadelphia will delight history buffs and art enthusiasts alike even in the dead of winter. This is where Betsy Ross stitched the nation's flag. It's the city where Rocky ran to the top of the Art Museum stairs.

Those are awesome days at all. As one of America's most established urban communities, Philadelphia will charm history buffs and craftsmanship aficionados alike even in the dead of winter. This is the place Betsy Ross sewed the country's banner. It's the city where Rocky hurried to the highest point of the Art Museum stairs as well. Thank you so much.
