Nature has been very noticeable this year. First nature misplaced the polar vortex, bringing us unusual cold, an ice storm with damage (see header), and above average snow.
February snow and ice
The crocus burst through in late March and cool skies in early April created contrails.
Then the vortex drifted back to the North pole and nature brought us an over abundance of rain, while parching other parts of the United States.
Finally in May nature warmed the air and the dogwoods, lilacs and azaleas burst into bloom.
