How about that April 5th weather, huh!? In the Sioux Falls area, we broke the record for high temperature on April 5. Meteorologist Aaron Doudna from Dakota News Now said, “We set a new record high of 90 on Monday. Our old record was 87 set back in 1991.”

It was so warm my neighbor Roger packed up his snowblower and put away in storage for the season.

One of the most important things about any neighborhood you live in is your neighbors. My neighbor Roger and his family are the best. So when he puts away from his snowblower I'm thinking I should pay attention and maybe follow suit.

Of course, it was just last year when we got over 5 inches of snow on Easter. Easter 2020 was on April 12. But checking out the extended forecast I'm more likely to take Roger's lead and stash my snowblower, pull out my lawnmower, and get it tuned up. I want to make sure is running nice and smooth for the wife. I'm a giver.
