    MARCH WEATHER. The month has given us lots of rain, thunderstorms and on March 15 we had lots of hail. It hailed so much at my home, it covered the ground and lasted on the ground for several hours as the temperatures got cooler.

    As I write this column, the temperature is in the 80s. It’s nice, but there is rain in the forecast. Dare I say that winter is behind us?

    I simply am overwhelmed at this weather, so many trees in full blossom that don’t normally bloom until late April or May. They are so beautiful.  We have a lilac bush that already has buds on it. Red Buds in full bloom and Dogwood blossoms beginning to open. Oh, so very beautiful.
