Are you there Spring?

When I woke up yesterday, I was surprised by the amount of snow that had accumulated overnight. The weather is behaving crazy. Tornadoes and horrible thunderstorms one week, and now 8 states have a blizzard warning. March 20th will be the first day of spring, but with only 6 days left of winter, we are facing what could be very dangerous weather conditions.

If you have friends or family in the Eastern states, especially if they are elderly, handicapped, or medically disabled, please check on them. Be sure they have water, food, heat, and electricity or get them to a place where they will have the necessities they need. 

If you must travel, keep an emergency kit in your car just in case. Keep food, water, blankets, and a roadside flare for your safety. Please drive cautiously and only go out if you absolutely must This will help the police and ambulances from having to rescue people in such hazardous conditions. 

Here in Illinois, we have been spoiled by this mild winter we have had, and we are ready for spring! Hopefully, this will be the last we will see of winter until next season.
