Lightning Alert


What are the chances that you will consult your weather app at 5:55 am and it will inform you of a Lightning Alert beginning at 5:55 am?

You’re more likely to be…well…you know. 

Despite the timely warning, the overall weather outlook is promising. Just a chance of showers mid morning. There’s a lot going on today Columbia/HoCo.

These are not the only local events today but they are the biggest ones. 

You’ll be able to quench your thirst while enjoying the music festival in Ellicott City with mocktails from Sobar. On offer: Mocktail Beverages including a new Espresso Martini and 4 new flavors from Zen Hemp Infusions. It’s great to see Sobar invited to participate in so many area events. 

Greenfest features so many local initiatives and or businesses that it would be hard to list them all. Off the top of my head: Community Ecology Institute, Upcycle, Howard Ecoworks, LiveGreen Howard, The Howard County Conservancy, and yummy food from Althea’s Almost Famous. There’s a Slow Art Walk that looks interesting, too. 

Out at Clarksville Commons, confirmed vendors for the market include:

Chez Tania: Mediterranean savories

Hensing’s Hilltop Acres, LLC: local meats, eggs, and raw milk for pets

Metro Microgreens: microgreens

Great Harvest Bread Co.

Heka Saucery, LLC: Egyptian tomato sauce

Twin Valley Distillers & Brewery: assorted spirits

Dee-lightfully Soft: handmade skincare products

Tasty Empanadas: salsa

Kora Lee’s Cafe: savory entrees & vegan desserts

Sharrah Orchards: fruits & vegetables

Waredaca Brewing: assorted beers

Urban Winery: assorted wines

Here’s some related news from The Common Kitchen. GuiGui’s Haitian Cuisine will open in April with regular hours 11 am-8 pm, along with carry-out and delivery services. The Taco Joint is transitioning to new ownership from Columbia residents Fernando Arellano and Rudy Lara,  owners of F&R Catering.

The threat of lightning is now over (yay!) but now the prediction for rain seems more likely (boo!) I hope you have a wonderful Saturday no matter what the weather may bring.
