A dusting of snow coats the bottom of a magnificent tree outside the middle school in Albion. This photo was taken at about 6:40 p.m. on March 25 when it was lightly snowing.

Winter won’t leave. Last Thursday, nearly a week ago, was the official start of spring and yet we continue to face snow flurries and 20-degree temperatures.

Wednesday will be more of the same with a high of 21 and a low of 13 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

It will break freezing on Thursday when temperatures reach a high of 43. It will hit 50 on Friday.

The same tree by the middle school in Albion shows its strength.
