We’ve had a beautiful week here in southwest Michigan, with record highs in the low 80s for the past two days. As a consequence, I’ve been hit hard with a case of spring fever. The last remaining pile of snow has melted — it was a huge pile, which only succumbed a couple of days ago — and spring flowers are displaying their colors. The grass is greening up and soon it will be time to mow lawn.
The high temps, however, will wane a bit today, as a cool front is arriving. That should drive the temperatures down about 20 degrees to where they should be for this time of year.
Although it would be great to enjoy 80-degree sunshine tomorrow on Easter, I can accept the prediction of partly cloudy and 60. At least there won’t be any snow, which does happen for some Easters in our clime.
Where ever you may be, and whatever weather might be sent your way, have a Happy Easter!
