Everyone is talking about the weather.
It doesn’t matter where you live — it’s snowing or icing, and the temps are dangerously low. Everyone is being told to stay indoors.
It’s for our own protection.
Yet in the midst of all this cold, a few bulbs can flourish in just a few inches of water.
In three days, I have watched them go from simple green stems to three visible blooms (and a hint of more to come).
Makes me believe that spring is more than just a groundhog’s shadowy promise.

Meteorologists — they rarely get it right, and they’re never held accountable. From time to time, we’ve probably all felt that way.
Well, there’s one weather team that is putting their forecasts through a daily ‘accuracy check.’
Alabama’s 13, the NBC station in Birmingham, has the motto ‘where accuracy matters.’ And it’s a challenge their meteorologists are taking seriously.
At the end of each forecast, they display the day’s actual high and low temperatures head-to-head with the predicted temperatures. Correct predictions get a big green fact check; misses rate a negative red.
It’s not like they can do much about it at that point, but I appreciate their willingness to showcase the egg on their face.
Bless their hearts.
