March Came In Like a Lion and is Leaving the Same Darn Way
Mother Nature has a way of making us wait. She likes to tease us for a while and then make us wait just a little bit more.
Take this weekend for example. Saturday and Sunday we have a couple of nice days. Trees are starting to bud. We’re expecting temperatures in the 50′s and 60′s. Now, it’s Saturday morning and I read this tweet from Todd Heitkamp of the National Weather Service.
Fast forward to Monday afternoon. Interstate is closed from Rapid City to Wall. Anything West River is Tough Wintertime driving!
It’s not that we had that ‘tough of a winter’ here in Sioux Falls. Personally, I judge a tough winter by the number of times I have to ‘blow or shovel’ out the end of the driveway. I had to do that ‘Twice.’ Heck, some years I’ve had to do that twice a week.
Really, we’ve had a pretty ‘easy’ winter here in Sioux Falls. It’s been cold as heck, but when you look at the amounts of snow some of the eastern states have picked up I think you would agree.
But to tease us one more time with an awesome weekend, and then with a Blizzard Watch to look forward to as we head back to work on Monday. That does seem kind of cruel.
