Spring Comes to Oklahoma City

One of the earliest signs of spring in Oklahoma City is when the pear trees start to flower. In fact, these trees will flower at the first sign of warm weather. Of course, we are still capable of having a cold front run in from the north, but right now we are having a spate of warm weather which signals that winter is loosing its grip on the Southern Plains.

The pear trees, like all the other trees in the state, have taken a bit of a beating from the winter ice storms we had. But I think they look lovely still the same.

Spring has not offically arrived yet here in Michigan. We received 5fresh inches of snow yesterday. In fact, it looks like we could go consider going coasting tomorrow afternoon, after Easter Sunday service.

I cannot wait to see the rebirth begin. It has been a long winter.
