Mother Nature rumbled across Oakland County on the first night of spring with powerful rolling thunderclasps and brilliant bolts of lightning; a reminder to us that severe spring weather season draws near. If a religious icon on the peak of a cathedral in Santa Fe is protected with a lightning rod, the message to us should be clear. Look at the clasped hands. Perhaps the message is prayer is not enough.
Practice situational awareness, watch the weather, listen to your NOAA Weather Radio and enjoy the new season. Staying safe is up to you.
