  • Weather has been a bit confusing

    Had to check my calendar last week! Just wanted to make sure I hadn't pulled a Rip Van Winkle! Granted, I like to sleep late sometimes, but going to sleep in early January and waking up in the spring would've been quite a stretch!
    What conditions would cause such confusion? Well, thunderstorms and tornados are sort of expected in the spring, not January!
