A few flowers have already been blooming due to the really warm weather we’ve had over the past month. They can make it official now. Spring arrives at 6:29 AM EDT Monday – March 20, 2017

Some folks would even question whether we’ve actually had winter this year, but in spite of lackluster snowfall and temps warmer than average, we did have our share of cold nights. Regardless, the calendar doesn’t lie and spring 2017 rolls in officially at 6:29 AM EDT Monday – March 20, 2017.

Remember the December 2009 blizzard and all of the snow that continued to follow for weeks and weeks? Folks were glad to bid that one farewell!

Don’t think we are in any danger of that happening to us now.
See you next season winter!
Here’s to warmer and longer days ahead!!
