A taste of spring teased students Thursday as the temperature climbed to 77 degrees in Bowling Green, despite the first day of spring still being three weeks away.
Nashville junior Paul Wilkins and Glasgow juniors Asa Darnell and Kris Simpson took advantage of the beautiful weather outside of Darnell’s apartment on Cabell Drive.
“We didn’t have anything to do, and it was warm out,” Darnell said. “We thought it’d be funny to pull the couch outside.”
Darnell, an avid kayaker and mountain biker, has anxiously been waiting for a day like Thursday all winter, so when he and his friends had a two-hour break between classes, they decided to make the most of it. They brought Darnell’s couch to the front yard so they could people-watch and talk to people walking by.
After Thursday’s tease, temperatures fell back into the 50s with high winds Friday, so it’s anyone’s guess when spring will be here to stay.
