Spring is trying very hard to spring in DC. For the past I'd say month temperatures have been below normal. The high temperatures have been around where the average lows are. So in other words it's been cold. There has also been a persistent high wind that makes it feel even colder.
Nothing points out how cold the spring's been then the cherry blossoms. They were first going to peak in the last week of March. Then April 3-6. Now it is supposed to be sometimes this week. My friend Stu and I are going to go down on Monday to take a look at them. Today and tomorrow it's supposed to be warm so hopefully the blossoms will pop out.
Here are a few signs of spring making an appearance.
