Step into Spring

What a difference a day makes!
Spring has finally sprung! I am so glad I got to see the blossoming cherry trees along Broad Street in downtown Chattanooga yesterday.

It was a perfect spring day; the 80 degrees F temperature actually felt 20 degrees cooler due to the high winds blowing across East Tennessee. Not that we mind, but the 25 mph-wind was rocking the boat all day long! Weather like this always reminds me of the tornadoes that hit the marina eleven years ago. The severe weather did spawn tornadoes in neighboring states. We're lucky and grateful nothing major developed here. Ahhh, such is life in the south. 

This morning I got up an hour before sunrise, hoping to see the planets Mars, Venus and Saturn cluster together. And this was what I saw.

Dark clouds so heavy you couldn't see a thing! It was disappointing, for sure. At least it didn't rain, and the sun came out in the afternoon. The wind has died down somewhat; sunny days are ahead.

And how was your day?

  7. Perfect lovely day. That would've been an amazing site to see the 3 planets without a telescope.
