a winter storm in the spring

Spring has sprung! My calendar reads that today is the first day of Spring, with tomorrow being the first full day.

The tulips are peeking out of the ground in my front yard. The birds are chirping in the early morning. What other tell-tale signs are there that announce Spring's glorious arrival?

That's right - the weather. Let's look at the forecast, shall we?

Spring could be ushered in by a late wintry blitz covering Central Indiana with 3 to 6 inches of snow Tuesday, Indianapolis forecasters for the National Weather Service said Sunday.

"It won't really feel like the start of spring," public forecaster Logan Johnson said of the storm, which will move in from the southwest late tonight, followed by a dry but chilly week of low temperatures in the 20s and highs in the low-to-mid-40s. Tuesday is the first full day of spring. (Indy Star)
What is going on here, I wonder. Then it dawns on me - that's right, I live in the Midwest. We have crazy weather here.


  1. Yeah, we're supposed to get 4-6 starting at noon today. There may be no school tomorrow. We shall see.

  2. Man! You know, that's really too's been pretty consistantly in the mid to upper 70's lately. At least you'll be able to take advantage in a couple of weeks!
