Actually temperatures for theActually temperatures for the month of May are running above normal. This month we've been pretty warm. Ironically spring hasn't been unusually cold either. There were a few cold spells here or there in April, however. I am in SE Ohio so I know exactly how frustrating it is because we've been slammed with snow after snow after snow this year. Many are sick of chilly weather but reality is, it's not summer yet but it will come! The sun is very powerful this time of year and the summer sun WILL NOT allow it to get this chilly again for some time. It's completely normal to have swings in temperatures as we recover from a terrible winter and I wouldn't be shocked if we had more. This has all happened before.. especially after the wicked winters of the 1970s! *shivers*
