Spring Has Sprung!
It’s mid April here at The Storage Inn, and the weather in Egg Harbor Township New Jersey, is finally starting to live up to its Spring billing! The temps are creeping into the mid 70’s – The windows in the Storage Rental Office/ Packing Store are open, and I even noticed one of our storage space customers, Mr. Pemberton, wearing shorts and flip-flops! “ Enjoying the weather?” I shouted. Mr. Pemberton replied by yelling back “Spring has sprung!” Yep – Everyone loves Spring!
I’ve heard the expression “Spring has sprung” many times , but it made me wonder if there are other sayings, or famous quotes about the Spring season? I did some investigating and found quite a few that I had never seen or heard before.
