The old wives tale says if it rains on Easter Sunday there will be rain for seven Sundays. But what if it snows? Let's hope the proverb applies only to rain! This year Easter Sunday and April Fools Day fell on the same day, which we choose to believe gave Mother Nature a brilliant opportunity to play a little trick on all of us. And, the biggest irony of all may be that in Lincoln and Logan County at least the Sunday snow is among the biggest snow we’ve had all season.

On Saturday morning temperatures were cold and rain was spitting from time to time. After careful consideration, the Lincoln Park District decided to go on with plans to hold their annual Easter Egg Hunt outside on the driving range. Temperatures were in the low to mid 40's and kids were bundled up warmed and prepared to get a little wet.

Thankfully by afternoon when the local Salt Creek A.B.A.T.E hosted their annual event at Kickapoo Creek Park, temperatures had risen making a bit more pleasant event.

Even though the weather was 'odd' the kids who came out for both events had a good time and really raked in the treats!
