The ficklest of months
March is undoubtedly the most fickle of all months when it comes to weather. The transition from winter to spring can be rocky.
This year has been no exception in the Jennings County area. We have experienced elements of all four seasons this month - in particular snow, a heavy, wet snow at that.
