Mild Local Weather Getting WNY Lakers Talking About Early Trips Here

Word is getting back here at Silver Lake that some of our Western New York Lakers are already thinking about Silver Lake and planning one or more quick trips down here to enjoy some of the early evidence of Spring. Steve, a summer resident on Genesee Ave. asked if I had been observing the geese returning north and the activities of the robins being spotted doing their thing locally.  I was happy to hear of their flight through WNY since I won't be fully aware of those things until the temperatures become much more compatible with arthritis and joint difficulties. I did, however, observe a photo of geese in flight taken by Kathy, a summer resident on Lakeview Ave. which appeared on Facebook this week. We look forward to more of these wonderful signs of spring.

Steve mentioned Thursday reaching 70 degrees which apparently was in the vicinity of his Rochester home since the Silver Lake temperatures were not that generous to us. One of our temperature -measuring locations put the Thursday high here at 55 and another at 58 degrees. Today we are only seeing the mid-40s and full blown clouds. Be advised that snow flurries are in the forecast for tonight and tomorrow. March may be "going out like a lamb," but the "lion" is still in charge.

UPDATE -- Temperature just hit 47 at 5:00 pm.
