BUZZED? THANK A BUTTERFLY! The US FWS has a great story on how pollinators help produce beer in Gainesville, FL, through efforts at UF to bring awareness and help conserve the frosted elfin butterfly, one of many species declining in populations.
WET WEEK. More moisture is in the forecast after we dry out today and tomorrow as a new low moves in. Things stay cool and cloudy, with hopes for a nice Memorial Day weekend and a good following week shaping up.
