Another textbook month for Mid-Missouri. March offered a nice respite from the usual suspects of winter by bringing more warmth, humidity, thunder, and more color to the area. Old man winter seemed to get one more punch in on the 20th with a day filled with snow to our west and sleet in the Fulton/Jeff City area. Other than that, it was a very nice spring-filled month. Especially the last week. OSNW3, it definitely went out like a lamb here, too.
