As I'm writing this blog post, it's the last few days of March. The high temperature is expected to reach 44 degrees Fahrenheit today (March 25) here in Central Wisconsin, which is a bit below the average high for this time of year.
With that aside, now would be a good time to discuss dividend increases that I received in March. I am not expecting any additional payout bumps in the next few days, but will update this post if needed. I'll also look ahead to the dividend raises that I am forecasting for next month.
