I love Spring.....Most of the Time

One of the great parts about living in the Tennessee Valley is the dramatic season changes we have. There are definitely four distinct seasons here, and we are full blown into the Spring season. I love this time of year when the weather warms up..but it's not too hot. You can go for weeks with your windows open. I love the blooming flowers and dogwoods, and the Bradford pears too, but Spring time around here can also be pretty volatile. April is the worst month for severe weather, and we are seeing quite a bit of it. We are fortunate to have a basement in our house to go to if a tornado occurs, and we have a weather radio for when the storms knock out the power. It can be quite scary. Although we are not located in what is traditionally known as Tornado Alley, we still get several tornado warnings every season and they are actually more dangerous - because of the hills and trees you can't see them coming. Other than that, and the extremely high pollen counts which make my sinuses swell, I really do love Spring around here.
