Operation Manatee #294 – Whattawildweek!

Crazy to believe that only a week ago, we were all huddling in our homes just trying to scrounge enough blankets to last through the night compared to the mild temperatures that we open this new week with. It’s almost warm enough to start turning the AC back on in your vehicles!
