Max 56.3F. It feels nice...I must admit.
Wow that was my exact max too! 56.3F Whats the chance of that happening!
Some misc musings..... On a more important note spring has arrived as I was able to completely close down the wood stove and clean it out. I have had a continuous firegoing for over 4 months till today. That March sun just heated the house even though it was in the 50's. Our town posted our roads today and I expect mud season to start in earnest tomorrrow as the dirt roads are starting to thaw out. Probably will not be too bad with a lack of precip this winter. Today the first small patch of lawn appeared on my steep southwest slope. My snow is quite durable after last weeks rain and subsequent deep freeze on top of the new snowfall. When I get to this time of year my mind set changes from looking forward to snow to getting rid of it. Always seems like the rest of the country experiences spring as we wait and wait for it up here in the North Country. Maybe this year will be different. Also have had 61" of snow this year. Not bad, my average is around 90" however a buch of that was the October storm that melted off. We never had deep snowcover at anypoint, probably the deepest was this past weekend with the 10-11" then the 2 1/2" the next morning before we went to a driving brief rain!
Enjoy the warm weather guys!
