March went out like a lion, as the folklore saying goes. Folks woke up on March 31 to a blustery snow storm. Typical of March weather though, by afternoon the snow was melting. The moisture was welcome, we just need more.

Thought for the day —

“In a world where you can be anything, be kind.”

“Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.”

“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”
