Spring Is In The Air

There's just something about sunshine and temperatures in the 70s. People walking around downtown Coeur d'Alene seemed to have a little more bounce in their step Tuesday afternoon, the first time since September that the temperature rose above 70. It was 72 degrees at 3:12 p.m. in Coeur d'Alene, said climatologist Cliff Harris. “It was a long winter, but it has been a short spring,” Harris said. It wasn't a record high for the date, he said. The temperature rose to 82 degrees on April 8, 1977. “So it was 10 degrees below the record, but still, it was nice,” Harris said/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: I consider the perfect Coeur d'Alene temperature to be between 75-78 degrees. How about you?
