Amsterdam, NY (March 1, 2011) — In the upstate city of Amsterdam, NY , the sunshine and warmth of a spring-like day brought unwelcome news to local residents — the imminent arrival of Spring. Unlike most communities eagerly awaiting the spring thaw and slow rise in temperatures, residents of Amsterdam look upon the change of seasons and their celebrants with a leery and distrustful eye.
“I’m totally opposed to spring”, longtime resident Kim Flanders remarked recently. “I do not see why Amsterdam needs spring. It’s wholly unnecessary”.
