Well, we’ve had quite the odd stretch of weather. From winter storm Hercules dropping up to a foot of snow, to rainy and 52 degrees out, before heading back to freezing temperatures. The chances for rain are 30%, 60%, and 70% for Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively. Temperatures will be between 41-53 degrees and we will only see below freezing on Sunday morning. I don’t know how to describe this sort of winter weather, but I’m counting the days to Spring!
