Seeing a bit of Spring in Siouxland, Hinton and Sioux City

There have been snippets of spring popping up in Siouxland between recent snowfalls and temperatures in the 20’s. Patches of green and here and there, surviving those cold days that are becoming fewer, but nevertheless still here. While not yet widespread, the green is a nice reminder of warmer days approaching and sunny skies with light breezes and shirt sleeved weather.

At least with warmer temperatures the opportunity to take a walk these days will become more tempting as long as people continue to use common sense and share the space respectfully and give everyone a chance to enjoy the day as the long wait continues before we see an all clear somewhere down the road.

    Beautiful pictures! Spring is finally here in Indiana- we had a few very sunny and (relatively) warm days- now rain, rain, rain!

      So you’ll have lovely May flowers to look forward to seeing then. It’s been rainy here as well. As least one isn’t scooping the moisture to clear sidewalks. Small blessings. Jerry
