Our View: Spring has sprung


Spring came to Craig. If you blinked, you may have missed it.

One day of summer followed by one day of winter -- that pretty much defines spring in Craig.

You could be sunbathing on Saturday and shoveling snow on Sunday -- make sure you get your outfits right. There's nothing worse than clearing the driveway in a bikini.

But when the skies are clear and the snow is gone, the people of Craig start to get out and enjoy the weather. A sense hope and renewal fills the air.

It's a great time to live here. There is something fun going on in town nearly every weekend.

Grand Olde West Days, Whittle the Wood Rendezvous, Ride-N-Tie Rodeo and countless other community events fill our calendars during the summer.

As the temperatures rise, we get excited to get out and about. Craig provides us innumerable opportunities for that.

Whether it's a picnic in Craig City Park, fishing at Loudy-Simpson Park or a shopping stroll down Yampa Avenue, there is plenty to do in Craig. Moffat County is the same -- Sandwash Basin, Dinosaur National Monument and the Yampa River all offer great opportunities to get outside and soak up the sun.

We commend the people of the area who maintain the areas we love to ride and raft on and the organizers of events that bring the community together. They're not only providing us opportunities to enjoy the weather, they're creating a sense of community pride that makes Craig the city it is.

We think residents should enjoy the resources we have. And quick -- winter will be here again before we know it.

Oh, look, here it comes.
