People in Michiana enjoying sunshine after week of rain

Posted:

Spring is in the air finally, and people all over Michiana are soaking up the sun.

With the sun beaming down and warm temperatures to enjoy many people in Michiana spent Wednesday afternoon outside.

The lovely weather made it the perfect day for Jerry Greening and his buddies to play some golf at Juday Creek. The first time they've been able to play the course this year.

"It's great. I look forward to playing with these guys," said Greening. "I've known them for about 30 years now and I always look forward to Wednesday afternoons. Especially Wednesday afternoons like this."

Not too far down the street, people flocked to Urban Swirl in Granger to enjoy some frozen yogurt. Chuck Zook and his group of friends said being able to enjoy their frozen treat outside was a nice change.

"The weather is so nice!" said Zook. "It's been so dreary with all the cold and the snow. I'm glad its beautiful out here."

Many folks at the South Bend Silver Hawks game were also glad to see the weather hold up through Wednesday evening. Many fans at the game said it was nice to watch a baseball game with actual "baseball weather" to go a long with it.

"You can't wish for anything better than to take your kids out to a game, enjoy a dog, watch the game. What better way to spend any night," said James Meyer.

Regardless of where folks were Wednesday, there's one thing they all said, they hope these past few days are a sign of things to come.

"Now you get the shorts out, the tank tops, the t-shirts. It's pretty nice," said Melissa Matingo.

There were 1100 people at the Silver Hawks game Wednesday night. The Silver Hawks sold more than 1000 tickets this year, than they had at this point last year, and that is even with three rain outs.
