Who is ready to warm up? On Saturday the Groundhog informed us that Spring is on the way. I am ready how about you? According to the National Weather Service we are on our way to a warm up.

It is a big swing in the right direction on the thermometer. We will kick the week off with Sun and 50, a far cry from last weeks arctic blast. Even though there is a chance for mixed precipitation Monday overnight most of the week looks calm.

I am planning to put the parka away for a few days. By the end of the week we will need a rain slicker instead of mittens and a scarf and that's okay with me.
