Temp. have been close to average more than not this year but it is far drier for March than the norm.
Last year it was below average temp. and above moisture, which I prefer to a dry March.
Forty Five years ago, above average March weather killed most of the Snowmobile Industry that was booming out of control.
Here it can be sub-zero with deep snow this time of year or short sleeve shirt, no coat, weather at the other end of the scale.
Fifteen years ago, we had a stretch of truly warm dry March years and that sucked the bag as we used to say.
The few truly warm days we have had a week ago, followed by hard freeze temps. days later does bad things to trees and shrubs.
Killed a nice Catalpa tree here three years ago.
