Time for Blue/White

Back in my days of trying to make it through winter to get to Blue/White weekend, weather like this would be a dream.

Yes, when you live in Harrisburg and elsewhere and can't wait for Penn State football, you think about Blue/White all winter.

I used to drive to Happy Valley in rain, fog, and snow. We all have done that in April.

It looks like banner weather for Blue/White and I'm happy about it. Visitors and everyone else will enjoy it, as we move directly from late winter to mid summer.

Blue/White is somewhat like any other weekend when you live in Happy Valley, though. There's always lots to do, and even this weekend there's every event and sport imaginable being held in Centre County -- away from Beaver Stadium.

Take care on the roads and bring sunscreen. You'll need it this weekend.
