44.2 degrees at 5:30 Tuesday a.m.

"The bloodiest four years in American history begin when Confederate shore batteries under General P.G.T. Beauregard open fire on Union-held Fort Sumter in South Carolina's Charleston Bay. During the next 34 hours, 50 Confederate guns and mortars launched more than 4,000 rounds at the poorly supplied fort. On April 13, U.S. Major Robert Anderson surrendered the fort. Two days later, U.S. President Abraham Lincoln issued a proclamation calling for 75,000 volunteer soldiers to quell the Southern "insurrection."


WKTV meteorologists predict that: "Behind the cold front, cooler and seasonable temperatures return on Tuesday with a few leftover showers. Highs will only be in the mid to upper 50s.

Clouds and rain showers on Wednesday, before the weather quiets down for Thursday and Friday."


Yesterday afternoon, it was 79 degrees and sunny on Main Street!

Patches of Blue Scilla (Scilla Siberica) have begun to make "puddles" and "ponds" on lawns.......

............ while out in the country tractors have appeared.

I've seen several Kildeer making low-level approaches over fields. This bird's name is derived from it's best-known song, which is is a loud kill-dee, kill-dee, kill-dee, given as males perform wide circle-flights over their territories in early spring.

Slow down and listen: the "peepers" are peeping in all of the swampy areas!
