About this Article
In light of the dangerous rains of the past few days, the adage “April showers bring May flowers,” will be put to the test this spring. After April's storms, floods, and sinkholes, the resulting May flowers better be every color of the rainbow and 20 stories high. As unlikely as it seems to those who are still drying out water-logged shoes and flooded homes, this week includes two days devoted to the gift of nature. Monday, April 22, is Earth Day — a chance to focus on the environment and the gift of Mother Earth, while Friday, April 26, marks Arbor Day.
