Normally on April 1, if my son had woken me up with "there is a raging blizzard outside!, " I would have laughed, knowing it to be an April Fool prank. However this year I wouldn't have batted an eye, just resigned myself to Mother Nature's cruel joke. April has finally arrived and the worst is now behind us. We have all emerged from our forced hibernation and Verona is getting ready to be a hub of activity. Already groups have met and started planning for festivals, concerts, derbies and jubilees. We are so ready!!
