“Sharon Things - Local Happenings for Sharon Springs”

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 2/29/24 | 2/29/24

Hey Neighbors!

It’s been a warm and strange one this past week with ups and downs and all around! Temperatures hit mid 60s and sunny on Wednesday to the delight of many! The wind kicked up after that bringing teens and lake effect snow to contrast.

Look out for higher temps into the 50s again next week with some rain expected at the end of week. It’s been a strange winter for most but remember, this has also been an El Niño year with a different pattern for the Jet Stream, giving us a typically warmer winter.

Have you ever heard of space weather? The sun is in its solar maximum and has been rather active with strong solar flares that can knock out cell phone communications and more. There was a cell service blackout last week that was thought to be related.

The days are lengthening and Spring is coming! The sun is setting at 5:46 PM now but don’t forget Daylight Savings Time is coming up on March 10th!

A big Happy Birthday to my daughter Aaria this week!
