In the Northern Hemisphere, meteorological spring began March 1, but for the rest of us, spring won’t arrive until the spring equinox March 20th. Although winter may seem like a whimper at that time, it can still spew its last gasp of inclement weather and prolong the agony for many that long...

“Two women friends and I want to do a weekend getaway in the next few weeks,” the note began. “Our wish list (though we can live without some of it) would be for a B&B or cabin, perhaps hot tub or access to a nearby spa, beautiful spot to walk, yummy restaurants and cool shops to browse.” The...
