Yep. That’s snow alright.

March 12. We promise not to call it white stuff; after all, it couldn’t possibly be snowing in March, not after it’s already been nearly 80 degrees. Ha. The National Weather Service says we’ll get more snow, mainly before 11 am. At 9 am it was hovering between 32 and 33 degrees, but it will get up near 47 later. Northeast winds are at 5-ish mph.

Roads are nice ‘n’ clear and there’s no need to panic buy bread, no matter how much fun that is.
