Many plants have already bloomed. The Bradford Pears in Newberry are about finished, but out here they have just started. It's still dry.
The last blast of weather had a doppler indicated tornado in a severe thunderstorm sail by at 60 miles to my north by about 6 miles. It was 4 AM and I dressed and had the dogs on the leashes, but it was already by me as I was on the phone to the weather bureau.
Daytime temperature readings have been in the mid 80s multiple times. Too warm too early.
