I’m starting to worry. We had an awesome winter with above normal temperatures, zero ice storms and just a dusting or so of snow. It never got freeze-in-your-boots cold.
March breezed in like a lamb with warm winds, sunny days and above normal temps. Forget jackets — we were edging into shorts and tank weather.
Everything was popping through the ground in celebration. Daffodils, crocus, hyacinths and tulips laid a colorful carpet in yards, including my own.
Magnolia trees bloomed through their cycle without getting the typical freeze that turned the flowers brown, as did the redbuds, peach and Bradford pears. Everywhere you look is beauty.
But I can’t help thinking the payback for this great weather is going to bite us hard one day. With warmer temps come the increase in storms, and in much of the US that means tornadoes.
How’s spring shaping up in your world? Are you anxious to plant a garden or flowers? Laze by the pool or beach with a good book?
