A Bonus “Nice Day” Tuesday

If the snow, wind and cold the past few days has brought on feelings of guilt and regret… You know, all of those outdoor things that you had intended to do… Clean the garage. Rake the leaves. Take down the trampoline. I could go on and on.

You can feel a little better because we’re going to get a bonus day this week. Tuesday. Highs will climb into the 50s and 60s with a few places reaching 70 degrees. It will be a bit breezy, bit it will be warm.

Don’t waste it because it’s only gonna last a day. Highs will drop back into the 30s and 40s by Wednesday and stay there for a while.
