Well, our biggest storm of the year is now over. The forecast issued on Monday night turned out decent. I was a bit underdone on the snow amounts, but from 36 hours away, not bad. I could have issued an update very early Wed as it was apparent that we would be getting more snow, but I felt it was covered in the mentioning of a shift further north giving us several more inches anyway.
But now it is over. The sun is melting it quickly as it should in later March. For the next several days, we remain cool, but then some milder weather comes for most of next week! Our Spring Break before it turns colder around Easter and lasts through the opening 1/3 - 1/2 of April.
A word of caution for the “milder weather” coming up. All things are relative. Our average high temperature for next week is in the lower 50s. The temperatures may rise to 50 and above a few days next week starting Tuesday, and it will feel warm. But remember its seasonable weather … not unusual for the time of year.
The snow threat I mentioned earlier this week for this weekend? It will be shoved to our south! Yeah! We have had our fair share of snow this year. So, let it go away. I am ready for mild weather. We had one last good 2-mile hike in the heavily falling snow (it was beautiful), and the kids went sledding, build a couple snowmen and snow dog too. But it’s time to get outside and do some other things.
Enjoy watching the snow melt 😊
