Mother Nature's Twisted Sense Of Humor Continues

Posted: Updated:
What a difference one week makes.

Last week around this time, we were covered in snow and many of us were actually stuck at work covering the snow storm.

Small pitches of ice still remain across the area – just a small reminder of the major storm we faced last week. So with word that we may get 60 mph winds and possible flooding, we went to Freedom Park and asked folk about this bizarre weather.

Staying fit is a top priority for Donna Watkins.

“I’m getting a run in before the weather changes its mind,” said Donna Watkins.

Watkins and her running buddies took advantage of the warm weather at Freedom Park.

“The weather is very nice and we needed it after last week’s snow blast,” said Watkins.

“Well it’s unbelievable we were sledding on this same park and now we’re sweating in it,” said John Walker.

“It’s just been crazy hot some days, cold, raining. Just four days we had snow and now we are out here with short sleeves and enjoying the sun,” said Donna Watkins.

John Walker’s kids wasted no time taking advantage of this weather.

“The big mistake is I put them in pants but I should have put them in shorts a T-shirt,” said John Walker.

It’s hard to believe that the Queen City looked like Alaska a week ago, but now looks and feels like a tropical island.

“It’s still February and not March. That’s when we get the most snow. February is when we get it and we aren’t safe until March,” said Donna Watkins.

If you’ve had damage from last week’s storm, check with your insurance company about what’s covered and what’s not.
