Today is March 15th which means that we should be starting to plant flowers, reseeding our lawns and getting ready for the warmer weather. right? Not this year, as of the time that I am writing this blog post (1:49PM) it is a balmy 29° outside and there is over a foot of snow on the ground from a major Nor’Easter that hit the Northeastern United States yesterday.
After having the 2nd warmest February on record where we actually hit 70, we are freezing our butts off in March. Temperatures have not been about 40 in over a week and we actually had low temperatures that hovered around 0. Looking at the long-range forecast that goes until March 29th, there are no temperatures forecasted above 45 with several days of snow forecasted.
Most Little Leagues will be starting to practice shortly and will begin playing games within 3 weeks. This weather is absolutely crazy.
