This has been the strangest winter I have experienced since moving to New England seven years ago. Our area only saw one major snow storm — in October, while we were away in Peru. Phew! Dodged that one! We waited for four months anticipating the next major snow storm only to be met with mild temperatures and minimal precipitation. Boring!
Normally by this time in early Spring, I would be crawling out of my skin to soak in the sun and bask in the warm temperatures. But this year, I just don’t have much to complain about. Nonetheless, we are very eager for the full-onslaught of Spring in New England if for no other reason than to witness the beauty that emerges as the landscape teems with new life.
In particular, we’re looking forward to three exciting aspects of Spring in New England:
1.) The flowers start to bloom!
2.) Waterfalls are (usually) flowing full-force from the melting of the winter’s snow.
3.) Everybody heads to the beach!
The arrival of Spring may be a little anti-climactic in New England this year, but it is a welcome change, nonetheless. We plan to get outside and enjoy it!
