What a beautiful week of weather. A week before the official start of spring, it felt more like spring than it did in May last year.
If North Dakota history repeats itself, we’re likely to get some snow before spring really arrives and stays. As I told my children, we really can’t count on being snow-free until mid-May. However, that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying the great weather we’re having now. If snow does hit the ground during the next several weeks, it quickly will melt, and then we can say we had a short winter.
