Hi Friends,

February 29th was the unofficial first day of Spring in Mansfield, Ohio. Our airport Metar station recorded a high of 68 degrees fahrenheit. Our ski lodge (Snow Trails) had a high of 70 degrees fahrenheit (or 20 degrees celsius). The Weather Channel ( uses our ski lodge for their records. The Village of Lexington, Ohio just south of Mansfield, Ohio had a high of 71 degrees fahrenheit. It was a beautiful sunny day. Birds were singing, bees were buzzing around the crocuses and people were in shorts. Our first 70 degree fahrenheit day should not occur until sometime in April.

I thought I would share a few Spring pictures with you.

Mike. I like to ski and like the snow. But, that looks more like our winter than spring.
