We have still had no rain, keeping the fire danger high and the river level low. On 4/12 the lake water was reported to be 45°, and the level is now below average by .24″. The forecast is for more above average temperatures and maybe a chance of rain for this coming weekend. The lack of rain also seems to be making things turn green a little more slowly than usual. The leaves have popped up here, but the grass seems to be suffering a bit. It is changing, just not as bright green and full as usual. The tiny leaves on the trees do add a nice green hue though. We do have some flowers popping out, and the forsythia in the front yard is looking pretty nice.
We should really see the flowers and grass turn green if it rains this weekend. We only have a few small flowers just starting, so fingers crossed we get some rain!
