Another unusually warm day in mid-March with temperatures in the mid-80s (°F) where normal highs are in the mid-40s.
This week is considered the ideal time to attend the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC as the blossoms are at their peak concentration this week. It was almost a year ago when we packed Akemi for a day trip to view the cherry blossoms. Temperatures were in the 20s then!
How quickly time flies. Once again, I am also reminded of our fleeting existence.
