Yes, the title of this blog could apply to the snowfall forecast for the recent storm. Let's be honest, it was bad, real bad, just no way around it. Many towns neared 2 feet of snow... the winner of them all? Blue Hill Observatory in Milton with 29.8"!
Worcester has hit the 101" mark for the season, over 68" of it falling in the last 5 weeks. That 101" makes it the 6th snowiest winter of all-time! Boston has picked up 55.9" so far this winter, with 47.1" falling since Feb. 3rd. In other words, we've had 4-5.5 FEET of snow since our furry friend Phil forecasted an early arrival of Spring. Hey, at least we "spring forward" tonight... clocks ahead one hour.
The title of the blog is also meant for the snow on the ground. That March 9th sun angle is about as strong as an early October sun, and that means it'll do a good job melting the snow on the ground. If you're done shoveling/plowing and cleaning up, today's a great day to take the kids skiing or sledding. Local ski resorts did great with this event, and the sledding hills are full of snow. Tomorrow's forecast is pretty much the same. Watch out tomorrow morning again for black ice as we go through this melt/refreeze cycle.
50s by Monday!
