March Madness

March, the month of endings and the month of beginnings. March, basketball, basketball, basketball, and hope eternal for baseball fans as spring training is fully underway. Maybe this is the year my beloved Mariners put on their tuxes and go to the big dance. Maybe this is the month when it will quit snowing.Maybe. Well, I can dream, can't I? It is looking more and more like the Wallace winters of yore, you know, the ones that I had to walk two blocks in the snow, uphill both ways to get my education?

On this day in history in our area and around the world this was the news.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
An American Airlines jet carrying 95 people crashed on takeoff from Idlewild Airport in NYC.All 95 people were killed. It was the single worst aviation disaster in Amercian history at that point in time.

Some things stay the same.From the Spokane Chronicle archives, March 1, 1962

City crews today continued their battle against snow and slick streets after what was described as a"mean" five or six hours yesterday afternoon and last night.
Wow ! That could have been this day, March 1, 2017. Some things never change.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Oh, and yes, Penny'sadvertised men's dress shirts 2for $5.00 Now that is something that has changed.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And we shall March on more tomorrow. Stay tuned.
