Easter can take many forms in our variable climate. Take Madison's Wingra Park, for example.
Kind of speaks for itself, doesn't it? This is why the Midwest is known for its highly unpredictable and notoriously variable spring weather. Two years ago, Wingra Park was green and drowning in rain on Easter. This year, not so much. And, yes, with the fraction of an inch that fell in the evening on Easter, Madison did break the 100-inch total for the season -- more than double the average. The winter that just won't end (more coming this week).
