My most memorable St. Patrick's Day was back in 1973. On that day I was scheduled to return home after having spent ten weeks studying in Mexico. However, I ended up spending the night in Atlanta because Cleveland had been hit with a heavy snow storm, and the airport had been closed.
That is certainly not the case this year. The mild weather continues. Although the first day of spring is still a few days away, perennials are sprouting in the flower beds and spring flowers are blooming.
The crocus are already past their prime, although this clump still looks fresh and pretty.
And in the last couple days the daffodils have started to bloom early.
We do have some colder weather forecast for this weekend with a chance of snow on Sunday. But, knock on wood, it doesn't look like anything comparable to the St. Patrick's Day snow of 1973.
