After a much warmer, less snow filled winter in the Grand Lake Region, March has turned out like none I have seen in this area, since we moved here in the early 1960s...
The flowering trees and plants are at least a month ahead of normal, and today and tomorrow, March 20th and 21st are calling for sunshine and 85 for highs both days...needless to say both will be records, if they are reached.
Usually lawns get their first mowing in this part of the world about the first week of April, if then...many have already been mowed once, and by the weekend, most will have been trimmed once or twice...
Usually you expect weird weather to bring more weird weather from the opposite end, and this Spring may indeed do just that, however, at least for the next 10 days...highs, while drifting south out of the mid 80s, will still be in the 60s and 70s, well above normal for this time of year.

I am sadly certain, that the death toll will rise....the rest of the weekend is now looking cold and windy, more like your typical early March weather.
