Springtime in New England

Spring in New England is so different from year to year.With the still cold ocean,location close to Canada,it can be the battle ground for Winter and Summer.March,April,and May can shift back and forth between the two seasons.
This spring has been a tale of two seasons.Our winter was much above normal,and we had one of the warmest Marches on record,Then April had some summerlike days,and then May became the month of change.It seems the battle of cold and warm air masses is being waged in the northeast.We have had two days this month where no precip has fallen,and looking at the weekend and next week,there won't be too many dry days either.
We received over an inch of rain last night and down on Cape Cod since yesterday,they have received over 3 inches of rain.
Rain is currently tapering off,and tomorrow the first half of the day should be sunny and mild,but cold unstable air will set off showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.Saturday looks to be the best day of the weekend,before cold front settles in Sunday and showers return in the afternoon, and right now it looks like next week will stay unsettled,with a front in the area.

Good Mornin' NEw!

Well, we just got our power back on after a 5 plus hr power outage due some old dilapidated tree, no less, knocked down an overhead wire somewhere up the street. (per electric co.) It appears 1,600 people in my vacinity were affected. We woke up around 4:00 am to our smoke alarm making a loud brief squawk, then seeing the sky light up nearby and finally everything turning dark inside and out. There were no t'storms, heavy rains or winds contributing to this mess. It's exasperating how towns and companies cut back or do nothing in taking simple measures (tree cutting on town property) to prevent such major disruptions from occuring. There are too many dilapidated age old trees with heavy limbs up and down the street that should be cut down! Would be nice to go more than just six months between outages for whatever the reasons!

These past few rainy days have certainly increased the lushness to our surrounding greenery. It makes me think of that decades old theme song to that equally old TV comedy, "Green Acres." Sadly, with all the recent power outages in downtown Boston as well, there's not much of difference between so-called city or country life anymore. We're all in the dark ages.

Sorry for the rant, but these outages are wearing us down.



Hope the remainder to the week runs better for us all. Thankfully, it's not mid-winter and temps are fairly comfortable right now.
