NH’s idea of Spring

Dear Mother Nature,

You do realize it is March 28? Just checking.

First time in NH

So yes, we got more snow today. Schools were even closed (which means J’s community and senior centers were closed, although he still worked). I think we got up to 6 inches and now it’s mainly just raining. The good news is that I’m pretty sure we now hold at least the second spot for the snowiest winter record. Yahoo!!!! I haven’t seen confirmed reports, but we are somewhere around 115 inches this year. The winter of 1873/74 still holds first place with 122 inches. Apparently winter is not over just yet, so we’ll see if we can steal the record.

The funny thing is that we were seeing signs of spring just this week. Though the roads still have some massive potholes and frost heaves, you could see grass, dead albeit, but it was there.
