A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder. -- Susan Orlean

Have We Turned the Corner?

While the South and Mid-Atlantic had a very active winter weather week, the Berkshires were uncharacteristically quiet, which could signal that Old Man Winter has started packing his things and will be vacating our area soon.

We still saw the temperature go below zero a few times this week, but the storm pattern has definitely changed and quieted down for us.

We're hearing from most of our sources that temperatures in March are expected to be normal or above average for the month. For the Berkshires, high 30s is the norm right now; high 40s is the expectation by the end of the month.

Given the forecast, you may actually see the grass on your lawn in two or three weeks. Temperatures are forecasted to get above freezing for the next ten days, and we do not have any major storms in the pipeline. Conditions are looking very, very good for the maple syrup producers.

You know that we'll see at least one more significant snowfall before it's all said and done, and that storm could come as late as May 1. With the winter we've had, we will not at all be surprised if we get one more doozy of a storm.
