Spring in January, but it will not last long...

Wow! What a beautiful day yesterday! We ended up warming up to 60° for the high. Lots of midday sun and Evan and I went for a run along Griggs Reservoir then when Summer got home from school we practiced some basketball. But, winter is back today and some snow on the way. 
We have been having fun doing science experiments at home and the kids have been loving it. I love seeing the amazement in the kids faces and trying to answer their questions. Sometimes I have to look up answers for them. We have been binging a channel on YouTube where a teacher answers lots of questions about the world around us. I think it is called Mystery Doug.

In some bittersweet news, I am closing up my shop on Etsy. If you are reading this early enough, feel free to stock up using the code 50OFF for 50% off. I have been making the balm for about 5 years now and there are a handful of reasons to close up the shop. I have had a handful of people let me know they are really sad about it closing and that has really meant a lot. I am excited for extra time to spend with the kids and family and I have a new project that I am starting to plan. Nothing for sale with the new project, but providing something free and it will be a labor of love... so stay tuned!
Good Friday morning! Make sure to grab the coat this morning because it will feel like the 20s all day long because of our brisk winds. Winds, out of the west, will be gusting 20-25 mph this morning and then slowly become lighter through the day. Thankfully not nearly as windy as yesterday evening. Many official wind gusts in the 50-60 mph range including a 61 mph wind gust at the OSU airport near Dublin. We are also very lucky the trees are bare because we would have more downed branches and trees if we had leaves. Back to today… Cloudy with light snow/flurries and a high around 37, but feeling like 29 for the high. Patchy accumulations up to half an inch possible. Lighter winds tonight and mostly cloudy skies with a low around 29 and a minimum wind chill in the lower 20s. Mostly cloudy on Saturday with a high of 38 and a very light breeze. Sunday we are tracking a wintry mix headed toward the area. The track still could change between now and Sunday, but right now it looks like we could see 1”-3” of snow for Central Ohio areas that stay all snow, but some rain may sneak in and that would cut down on snowfall totals. Stay tuned to the forecast because there will likely need to be adjustments. A few flurries or light snow showers lingering early Monday. Highs in the upper 30s for Sunday and Monday. Tuesday will be quiet once again with mostly cloudy skies and we warm to 42 for the high and the warmest day on the 7-day. Another rain/snow on Wednesday and this looks to have more moisture. Some lingering flurries on Thursday as temperatures drop even more. We will have a high around 41 on Wednesday then a high of 32 on Thursday. Even colder temps by Friday and next weekend. Have a good one!
