Where is Spring?

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…

Mother Nature Has PMS

I knew that we couldn’t get through the whole Winter Season without Mother Nature PMS’ing.  Three snowstorms have hit the Southern New England area this past weekend leaving a total of 21″ of snow on the ground. So far this Winter, we had been lulled into a false sense of security with relatively mild temperatures and liquid, rather than frozen precipitation.  Temperatures have been in the mid to upper 40’s (we even had two days in the 60’s) and so far only one day where we have had sub 0°…

This storm is expected to rapidly intensify off of the Southern New England coast and rapidly off into the Northern Atlantic Ocean and the snow should be over by 7PM.

This is April, Right?

It is April isn’t it?  My calendar says that it is Spring.  We woke this morning to 6″ of heavy wet snow here (only 1″ was predicted.).  The Weathermen are also predicting another 3-5″ of snow for Monday morning (4/4/16).  I know that I really shouldn’t complain after the mild Winter that we had this year, but enough is enough. Local Little Leagues are starting to practice and many have their Opening Days scheduled for this upcoming weekend.  The State of Rhode Island DEM is also opening the 2016 Trout…

Early Spring is Tough in New England

Mother Nature can play some cruel tricks on those of us that live in New England.  In the past thirty days we have had just about any weather type that you could think of, rain, wind, snow, sleet, hail, severe thunderstorms, freezing rain and an 80° day.  and that is all within the past 30 days… Mother Nature, go home, you’re drunk! Although this is very frustrating when you are trying to make outdoor plans, this is very typical weather for early Spring in this area. The day that I…

Spring Snowstorm

Just as everyone is getting their yards ready for Spring.  Just as the Easter holiday is coming upon us.  Mother Nature has to let us know one last time that we got off easy this past Winter. Winter Storm Warnings were issued for Southeastern New England on Sunday, March 20th for Sunday evening and Monday morning.  According to local TV Weathermen, the bulk of the storm was to hit us during the Monday morning rush hour with snowfall rates of 1-2″ per an hour, with total accumulations of 3″-10″ depending…

A quick post

It’s been a while since I posted anything here, so I thought I would get you up-to-date. We’re it’s been a while since I posted anything here, so I thought I would get you up-to-date. We’re getting into the winter months here but you wouldn’t know it by the temperatures. Normally at this time of year we should be in the 40s, but we have been regularly in the 60° range. I know that eventually mother nature will even things out, which I am not looking forward to. With about…

We made it through the Blizzard of 2015

Blizzard of 2015

After 31″ of snow, four hours of shoveling and numerous cups of hot chocolate, I think that I can safely say that we made it through the Blizzard of 2015 fine.  We sustained no damage to any of our property and did not loose power at all during the storm. As of 11:00am on Wed. January 28th our road is plowed (still covered with snow, but passable).  Most roads in Burrillville have been plowed and can be driven on without any major issues. Leigh and the girls did not have…
