Freaky March....Winter Officially End..But?

Today begins the official beginning of Spring, but truthfully it began long ago.

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.

All Hell Breaks Loose in the Heartland!

The warmer winter of 2011-12 turned violent in the Grand Lake Region today...albeit most of the violent and deadly weather was south of us....especially in southern Indiana, where death and destruction were rampant in the area just north of Louisville, Kentucky.  With friends living Louisville, and a Vietnam buddy of mine, Tom McCandless living in Clark County, Indiana, where two small towns were became a concern.

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.

Photos-I was out shooting photos before Sunrise this morning, within an hour of Sol coming up, the storms had began their assault on the Midwest....
