Sharing is caring!

Following the deadly and destructive tornadoes in Tennessee early Tuesday morning, an outbreak of severe weather continued to pummel portions of the United States Tuesday evening. Around the lake, today will be mostly sunny, with a high near 45 and a low of around 28 degrees. West winds of 16 to 18 mph, with gusts as high as 28 mph.  Increasing cloudiness over night.

Thanks to our friends at Garrett Regional Medical Center.  They just sent over their official rain and snow measurements for the month of February.  The offical numbers for February are 2.54 inches of rain and 13.8 inches of snow.  The average high temperature-wise for the month was 44.8 degrees and the average low was 23.8 degrees.  Thanks folks!

Speaking of the weather, I think a lot of us (me included) hope for it to either snow a lot or to STOP raining.  Here’s a neat photo submitted by Chris Nichols that shows the regional snow cover on March 1st as presented in a US National Weather Service satellite photo.  As usual, we are in that little “finger” that drops down into Garrett County. If you look closely, you can see the state line delineations and if you look really closely, you can see me waving from my front yard…

Speaking of this year’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, I heard it has really gone to the dogs!  Well, at least at HART for Animals it has.  See this photo for proof:

Other than embarrassing this poor fellow (or is it a lady?), HART has been up to some really good “stuff,” as usual.  Through February 2020 year-to-date, HART has performed/enabled the following – Low-Cost/No-Cost Spays & Neuters: 133; Rescue & Transports: 111; and Adoptions: 40  And, HART is celebrating MICRO CHIP MARCH by offering $10 savings this month! Why micro chip your pets you may be asking? Well, the American Humane Association estimates over 10 million dogs and cats are lost or stolen in the U.S. every year. 🙁  A micro chip is a simple product of our high-tech age.
