With the official closure of the 2017 winter season,  March 20th marked the very first day of spring here in Northeast Ohio. Although the wild temperature swings and crazy “hot then cold” conditions of the winter really put a damper on some of us, there is no need to fear. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts that this spring will bring above average temperatures that will last through May. They expect that we will see a very average amount of precipitation. So, with this good news in mind, how will you spend your spring of 2017? Here are some easy and exciting ways to have fun with friends and family– rain or shine.
