Winter - Spring - Winter

Well, we've had a bit of a roller coaster ride over the last week. The day after my last post was our first warm day in months. The temperature topped out at 65 on the 9th, but hit 77 on the 13th and 73 on the 14th. Two warm days that led up to some passing thunderstorms and a bit of rain. We've had the back side of this warm weather now though and temperatures are back in the 30's and 40's for daytime highs. Winter's not done yet.

The east coast is getting hammered with a late winter storm that is dumping some heavy rain, snow, and ice. Boston and New York are getting 3-6 inches in the city centers while up to a foot of snow has fallen in the western suburbs of those cities.

Meanwhile, back here in Indiana I've noticed that the daffodils are getting larger after their early rise in January and some trees are beginning to bud. With signs like these, spring can't be far behind.
