Friday Five: 3/30/2018

March is coming to a close, and it’s not going out like a lamb. After a month of cold, things have started to warm up over the past few days (“warm” being in the upper 40s and low 50s), but it’s going to get cold again this weekend. To kick off your Friday, here’s our selection for this week: 4 videos and an article. Pour yourself an extra cup of coffee and enjoy!
