As the mercury creeps toward 90 degrees Tuesday afternoon, the vehicles creep around Dairy Castle, three sides of the parking lot and onto Indianapolis Road. As if a hot June day wouldn't have been enough to attract crowds, Tuesday also marked the Greencastle ice cream stand's second "opening day" of 2020. While open only to drive-through customers for the time being, Dairy Castle had been closed since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements. However, with summer fast approaching and the state slowly reopening for business, the return of Dairy Castle seems to serve as a sign that maybe -- just maybe -- things are getting back to normal.
