As we look forward to what is supposed to be an early spring you might want to wait before you pack away your coat and gloves as it looks like we have some winter weather yet to come our way. As I write this article it is snowing in Placerville and the Sierra foothills. But all good things must come to an end and even better things will be coming our way as the winter gives way to spring. The month of March is always packed full of fun filled events and here are just a few things that are happening in El Dorado County, Sacramento County, and Placer County that you might want to mark on your calendar.
