Ah, spring in the southeast. The early flowers have already made their appearances, the landscape is that particular shade of green, the air has that hint of warmth that proclaims the changing season, and the kids at school are dismissing early today because of the afternoon tornado risk.
The first three signs of spring? I’m okay with those. That last one, though, is kind of a downer. North Alabama is under “moderate risk” of severe weather, including tornadoes and large hail. That’s the second-highest risk level, so batten down the hatches.
It could be a wild one.
