Imagine being able to rewrite the course of world history.
The Walla Walla Valley was treated to a foretaste of summer this past week as afternoon high temperatures on Friday touched the 80-degree mark. A general rejoicing could be heard throughout the land, and winter-weary citizens — both young and old — welcomed the warmth like a long-lost friend, which indeed it was.
Although a light coat felt good as we started our walk this late spring morning, there was a promise of a warm day.
