This year, winter in southern New England has been the mildest I can recall in my 61 orbits around the Sun.
Not much snow at all lately: 3 inches on February 24, 2 inches on February 29 for a grand total of 14 inches for the season on Compounce Mountain. And when it falls, it is all gone in a day or two thanks to rain and/or warm temperatures.
Speaking of temperatures, today, the high was 57 degrees F and tomorrow, it is supposed to be warmer.
And I saw my first groundhog today. Last year, my brown furry friends didn't come out of hibernation until March 17, ten days later than this year.
Smells like global warming!
