STILL MELTING. Despite days where the temperature doesn’t make it above freezing, the March sun still has the power to melt snow. Due to its higher angle in the sky, and more direct radiation as the earth tilts toward its spring position, the sun’s light is stronger and causes melting, even when things don’t hit 32 on the thermometer.
GET SAFE. A national campaign is encouraging safe boating procedures and that all who operate watercraft take a course to improve their skills on the water. Learn more from the NDG&F Dept. which offers a boating basics course for all those who are interested.
