The weather has been cloudy for more than a week and many days have been shrouded in fog. The temperatures are now hovering around thirty degrees fahrenheit.
Grandpa Sonny is fond of saying that we have three beautiful seasons and Mud. The melting begins in GriggsDakota.
There was heavy snow all over the area this winter and flooding has been forecast. A slow melt that begins in March and steadily continues without much additional precipitation could reduce the damage of Spring flooding. Thawing temperatures during the day and freezing at night are best for early Spring. Or as Grandpa would say early Mud.
