Indiana weather is a mystery. When you open the door in the morning you just are not sure what season will greet you. I think it has always been this way in the Hoosier state although as a child I remember seasons being more defined. Daily weather checking is usually not on my daily agenda but I have this lingering memory of last spring. Last March Indiana brought us summer weather early. We went from winter to summer with only a few days of spring. Sweet spring was missed but the arrival of summer made one forget. So the first order of the day after getting my feet on the floor was checking the seven day forecast. I have this hope of a repeat of last year with a tinge of more spring. UGH! The expected highs are not close to the normal 47 degrees for this time of year. Appears it will be wet and gray and cold. Disappointment. But on the horizon is Spring Break and hopefully it will be warm and sunny where we will be going. We northerns so do depend on it.
There are countless great books about the weather. Our older readers have been engaged in the Storm Runners series by Roland Smith. There are several great engaging NF weather books. Check out Gail Gibbons besides the few titles listed here.
