When will we hit “Double Nickels”?

When will we hit “Double Nickels”?

I recently put up a poll on our Facebook page regarding when you think will be the first day this year we hit 55 degrees.  Some interesting guesses.  It SEEMS like maybe August 12th?  That may be when the snow is completely gone. Now it’s my turn.  I think we may sneak close in March and April BUT if I was a betting man I have to say this year it will be about May 4th.  All the snow we’ve had is going to hold those temps down until significant melting occurs.  Who knows…maybe we’ll get lucky and Regina’s guess of March 17th will come true.  I’ll be thankful to hit 50 at this point.  Winter is dragging on because it was very early (and brutal) this year.  OK…we’ll keep track of things and watch for our first “Double Nickel” day in the Northwoods sunshine.  Think spring.

I also am fortunate enough to receive thanks and gifts on Mothers Day which is very cool but Fathers…read more »
