LOOKS WARM. Our first day near 40 in over a month will continue the melting process as we move into mid-week. One more storm stands between us and spring (the “back breaker” we needed to shift the pattern). We talk about that, monarchs and more in today’s Three Things.

MIX IT UP! This year’s ND park pass features the monarch butterfly, but with it comes a great bonus that helps the popular pollinator, as explained in this week’s North Dakota Outdoors on the NDG&F site. A seed mix that covers 25 square feet will help establish flowers and other habitat necessary for the insect’s survival.
SOUTHEAST SWIPE. Winter isn’t over yet, as a massive low-pressure system races across the Midwest. The bands on the back end will dump up to a foot of snow or more across the southeastern third of ND on Wednesday night. Batten down one more time, there’s still hope spring is on the way.
REMOVE. Don’t forget to take permanent ice houses off the hard water by the end of the week. Melting today and tomorrow should assist with that before the inclement weather hits on Wednesday night!
