Snow Again Today

yesterday in the 50's, decent biking weather even with the wind. Today, Rain that turned to sleet, then snow. Really cold and raw. Tomorrow, more of the same predicted, with just rain predicted for Wednesday. If I was not afraid of the moderator I would have said it really s**ked.

It is time to ride, what happened to spring.

I'd be very surprised if we don't get any more snow here before long. It's usually mid April before the 'all clear' can be sounded.

Been wondering the same and I have looked and couldn't find a date when it was supposed to start.

With British Summertime starting on March 29th- It looks like spring was cancelled this year.

And you live near the Cape where it doesn't stick around much anyway. You could be up in this neck of Taxachusetts where it's more hella miserable. And we suffered through the ice storm of the century in December too.

We had snow yesterday. And yet another cold front is on its way in. Wed morning may have wind chills down to around 2-3 degrees. Thursday morning will be sub-zero. But weekend highs are expected to be in the 40s. That's a lot warmer than what we've had for 4 months.

True, but have you noticed the trend toward more snow on the South Shore in the last few years? I remember the old days when all of the heavy snow was "north and west of Boston".

Same here. Not much -- just a couple centimetres -- but bitter wind with it.
