It's hard to believe it was in the 80s just days ago - with snow earlier this week! - but this weekend's forecast is for the low 50s; partly cloudy on Saturday but sunny on Sunday. Hopefully it will be warm enough to get a little gardening and mulching done in addition to hanging out with Sid and some Storm Troopers. Whatever your plans, have a great weekend! As always, thanks for reading.
