GREAT GUSTS. Today’s wind gusts into the mid-30-mph range may serve as the end of the beginning for busting up and blowing off whatever lake ice is left floating around in most areas of the state. We look ahead at that and go around the horn in today’s Three Things.

MERIT. The Boy Scouts of America have more badges today than ever before. From staples like fishing and rifle shooting, to lesser known options like public speaking and journalism, millions of badges go out to those looking to add to their knowledge through the BSA program. The most popular? First Aid. See them all (and their rankings) at the Bryan on Scouting blog.
LOOK AHEAD. In the days to come, a couple of weak fronts attempt to bring a spattering of rain on Monday and Tuesday with a short cooldown, followed by temps bumping back up into the high sixties and low seventies. No soakers are in the forecast, so we warily turn our eyes to the drought monitor, as mid-range forecasts suggest more windy days ahead.
