Spring Equinox - 73 Days til Hurricane Season
Starbucks broke out the bright yellow cups for the start of Spring.
Rush right over if you need to feel the love...
Spring is officially here but the fly in the ointment is that we will continue having cold spells for the next few weeks at least. Winter took a vacation this year and reappeared in the beginning of March. Yes, we have some warm days to look forward to ... however, its not over until it's over. And everyone wants it over it seems. Remember that come August when everyone is complaining it's too darn hot!
The recent spate of wintry weather and freezing temperatures has taken a bite out of the early Spring harvest and only time will tell how the strawberries and peaches really do. And with every night that the temperature threatens to dip down below freezing the concerns continue. But in truth that's part of the way the process works. You don't really believe in true love and happy endings do you? Weather is never exactly the same and it all gets evened out when you study the climate. Climate alert: It's Spring! And it's forecast to be a wet Spring in some parts of the country. And, a little birdie told me that Severe Weather will be on the come on like cray this Spring as Mother Nature takes a walk on the wild side. Stay tuned.
As for the tropics the cold intrusions continue.
We aren't there yet...
At some point we can watch those fronts dangling in Carib.
But not until there aren't anymore behind them.
And the water needs to warm up...
We aren't there yet.
So stay tuned and do something to celebrate Spring.
Personally I'm dreaming on the beach.
A Carolina Beach
I kind of have a thing for the low country...
