Ahead of Schedule

I have come to the conclusion that spring is ahead of schedule this year.  Yes, we usually get an early melt — but then we have a major snowstorm soon afterwards.  This year, everything has melted, and looking at the forecast, I see no snow in sight for the next week or so.  Good News.  My colleague always tells me that we have St. Patrick’s Day snow — but this year, the forecast is calling for sun.

What else is ahead of schedule?  Sandra Beasley’s I Was the Jukebox arrived in my mailbox today.  The book was not supposed to be released until April, but like Jehanne Dubrow’s Stateside, Beasley’s book is way ahead of the original release date.  I have been eagerly awaiting this book since I fell in love with the poem,  “I Was the Jukebox” originally published in 32 Poems

I guess grading will wait a bit this week.  I have too much reading to do.
