That is 7.62 feet people! and considering we had 152 days of below 32 degree weather-I can say that I am so over it. Spring? Come on in.

Let me Check...Yep, still Winter
Hello, Mother Nature? It can be spring now. Really, any day now. March in the Northeast can be the hardest month of winter I think. You are really still in winter as evidenced by these recent pictures, but you are so close to April, that you can almost feel it.
