Thoughts While ShavingThe weather picture has changed for the Bladen County, NC area in the past few hours … Crappy day yesterday, about an inch of rainfall and windy … that front has moved on … Sunny skies today, with a high near 57, windy with gusts in the 20 mph range. Tonight, mostly clear, low near 32 … Friday, sunny, with a high near 53 degrees.

Next good chance of rain is Sunday night … 70% chance…

Local rainfall over the past 24 hours was in the 1 inch range…

Basketball still reigns in our area … high school and college, but baseball season is just around the corner … Watching East or West Bladen basketball is worth the price of admission.

Major League Baseball begins officially on March 30, and unlike past years, all 30 teams will be playing on that date, if my info is correct…

Hopefully a huge season for former Whiteville Wolfpacker MacKenzie Gore. The 23-year-old left-handed pitcher begins the 2023 season with a new team … He was part of a package deal between the San Diego Padres and the Washington Nationals late last season … He had some brilliant moments at times last season, and some ‘not so pleasant’ outings … Hopefully 2023 will be his breakout season…

LSU baseball team is the preseason favorite according to a couple of preseason polls … Wake Forest, NC State, UNC and ECU mentioned as top 20 in the same polls.

Mark your calendar … May 19 & 20 … White Lake Water Festival…
