Another Endless Winter in New England
As New England sees its third storm in a week, weary residents await springs arrival with much anticipation. This week’s triple snowfall tally is not unlike the trends of the last decade in the east, as snowfall amounts and frequency in storms have made folks across the northeast weary of winter.
Much of the northeast part of the country has seen at least 12+ inches in the last three storms with some areas reaching over 2 feet. Most parts of Connecticut have experienced over a foot of snow in the last week and parts of Massachusetts have peaked at over a foot though there has been some melting in between storms. But with the threat of yet another storm early next week, most people think spring can't come soon enough.
Fortunately for many in the region, the temperatures are set to spike this coming week to near record warmth cresting in or near the 50 degree mark. While there have been a few brief moments where the throngs of spring robins have peeked their heads out, they'll have to wait just a little bit longer before they can sing the song of spring. I think this year the robins won't be the only ones singing when spring finally arrives in the northeast.
