<BR>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;A sunny day in the park ... is spring here?


   It's a great day for a picnic! Spring is here, the days are getting longer and it's a perfect time to celebrate the warmer days. Taking advantage of Wednesday's 55 + degree temperatures, Terry Black took her day care kids out for an afternoon of running, climbing, swinging and just having fun in the Ochoco Creek Park. Although Tuesday's wind storm with its blowing dust drove people indoors, overnight things changed and the day'snice weather drew many people out to the parks. The good weather enjoyed by the kids isn't expected to stick around, though. Over the next few days, the weather service is forecasting mixed sunshine, cloudiness and cooler temperatures. For a while longer, we'l have to take advantage of the good days whenever they occur.
