The weather this spring continues to leave people wanting. Statistically, this has been a good spring.
March was almost 6 degrees above average. Of the 31 days in March, 22 were above the average for the day. There was just 0.4 inches of snow in March compared to the average of 9.1 inches.
We had our first 70-degree day on March 15, which is more than a month ahead of the average first 70-degree day of spring. And apart from the statistics, the winter snow melted away quickly and there has been no flood.
Perhaps the discontent is from our being spoiled by the good weather. It got to 75 degrees in the middle of March, but it has not remained 75 degrees. Maybe we have all been touched by the snowbird syndrome. We have forgotten what it is to be really cold. We have forgotten how rotten spring weather can be in these parts. We have become soft.
