Winter has made an encore and many of us are longing for warm, sunny Spring weather. A couple of weeks back as I was thinking about Spring and Summer in the Berkshires, I asked the Facebook community what aspects and activities they enjoyed most about the Berkshires. The WSBS Facebook page received quite a feedback list and here are the responses (in no particular order):
