The past two days, temperatures have been in the 40's, and the rest of the week will be in the 50's. Here are five things you can do outside this week:

5. Get your car washed. After all of the salt and dirty snow, now is a great time to clean that vehicle.


4. Grill out. Take a break from cooking in the kitchen and fire up that grill.


3. Drive with the windows down. Ok, this may be a stretch.


2. Make the new guy, who shows up late, stand outside. I had to do it when it was in the 20's, so this is a lot more bearable.


1. Go outside. Go to a park, on a hike/walk, or anything else that can get you outside in this weather. Take advantage of the warmer weather.
