Sunshiny days and summer-like temperatures the last two weeks have marred any memory of the winter that never really arrived. With temps in the 70s and 80s, Michigan has been warmer than many of the southern and western states, including Florida, Arizona and Hawaii. WOOD-TV8 said that the 87-degree reading in Grand Rapids on Wednesday, March 21, 2012, made it the warmest day ever in March in G.R. The city is now 16.2 degrees warmer than average for March.
All the sunshine is also bringing out the flowers. Craig Owens, of Cedar Springs, and Christine Solomon, also of Cedar Springs shared some lovely flowers from their yard, and Tyler Felty, a Cedar Springs grad going to school at Ferris in Big Rapids, sent us some of the flowers he’s seeing around campus as well. Thanks so much!
