In the town I grew up in we had a Dairy Queen down on Main Street and their opening and closing acted as the unofficial time keeper of the seasons. If I drove by and saw the line backing up I could declare that Spring had arrived even if it was late February or early March. Same process would be applied to the "See You Next Spring" sign in the window each fall. This is no different for those that grew up in this area as Jim's has been serving the region for 50 years!
We've taken the air conditioners out of the windows and turned the heat on and off as often as a TV so we do realize we are on borrowed time with the warmth. This re-opening will last as long as a sundae on an August afternoon. This week, stop by Jim's Tastee Freez, 58 Delaware Avenue, Delmar between 12 noon and 8pm and get a Boston Shake, soft serve or a Tornado!
