Did the Crawfish See His Shadow?

Here in north-west Louisiana, we have had more than our share of rain in February which only proved how wrong I was in saying that January would be the most dismal weather month of 2018. It’s been grey, dreary, wet and cold. I can’t remember the last time where the three major  Mardi Gras parades were affected by the weather in one season, but Centaur and Gemini both persevered through the drizzle and the downpours. Highland still had a great turnout despite everyone’s hands being too frozen to catch the throws. But now that the season of Lent is here, spring is just around the corner. Soon we will exchange our cabin fever for spring fever. For Realtors, spring is extra special.  Without a doubt, it’s the busiest time of year for us to help our clients buy and sell houses. Properties look prettier, the temperature is perfect for home shopping and people just feel happier and excited to make a change.
