Some incredible sunsets this week in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Firey sunsets. Red sky at night. Sailor’s delight. That old cliche may prove wrong today with rain, thunderstorms and flood warnings headed our way.

As March sunsets and April begins we look with hope for more Spring but Mama Nature has a cold weekend that may even bring snow (?) showers in the upper elevations.

But we welcome April with anticipation of its warm embrace. Winter, at least calendar-wise, is officially gone. Spring is here. Flowers are blooming and Spring fever has hit chateau Thompson full-time.

Let the madness begin.
