You can see the amazing turn around on temperatures from Friday morning through Friday evening. We started in the middle to upper teens and rose into the middle 40s. We melted down two inches of snow and most of our snow should be gone by later today.
You can see Kimberly New's cute pug Jersey. Yes, that is Justin's Mom. I have met her and she is just as charming as our son. Where do you think he got it from? Speaking of dogs soaking up some sunshine and nice mild weather. I am looking forward to taking my dog on a nice long walk today. We both deserve it and I am glad he will not run from me when I offer to take him outside!
It is hard to believe that our warmest day so far this year was only 46 on January 4th. Today we will beat that by at least 10 degrees with highs in the middle 50s. If we break out into enough sun this afternoon we could hit 60! Last year we had our January thaw early with a few reports of daffodils around the area by January 7th as you can see above! This year we will be watching for a few daffodils to pop early by the middle of next week with temperatures near 60 by Tuesday!
I will check back but for now I am currently doing some Spring cleaning. Have a great and safe weekend and thanks for all the kind thoughts and wishes throughout the week. We certainly have become like a tight-knit family!! :) We all do need to watch out for one another and watch out for winter's return late next week and weekend. One model had a snowstorm over us next weekend. I will check back with more on that later today and we will take a look at our flooding threat which will rapidly rise like the rivers by the middle and end of next week. While I do not see anything resembling last year's historic flood we will have to be on guard. Keep in mind the Wabash watershed extends all the way up into Starke and Marshall counties where they have a lot more snow on the ground. This is what concerns me. Stay tuned and logged on!
