Spring has been arriving slowly in my part of the world. Temperatures most of the week continue to be chilly here in northwest Indiana. On Thursday, we had something that I call thunder snow. That is to say that we had lightening and thunder during a snowstorm. Nonetheless, if you look at the outside world very carefully, you can see signs of spring.
