What boring weather!

After what seemed to be an endless stream of crazy and extreme weather last year (2011), 2012 is very tamed!  The only extreme weather this year as the been the extreme lack of anything spectacular, of course unless you call the warm weather extreme.  So far this winter the only snow storm experienced here in southern Connecticut was back on January 21, 2011, where we were lucky enough to get stuck under a small band of snow!  I ended up with 8 inches in my front yard, but that's a far cry from the close to 50 inches we received in all of January 2011!  I guess we got all the snow for two years in 2011!  As the buds begin to grow bigger on the trees everyday and the sun getting stronger each day, the hopes and chances of a big winter storm are slowly dwindling .  Of course there is always still a chance of a huge storm, the Superstorm of 1993 was in March and so was the infamous blizzard of 1888!  Although the chance always sticks to the back of my mind, I'm almost ready for spring!  I just hope we don't end up with a cooler than normal spring, cool springs are horrible in New England and unfortunately happen often, especially when living near the water.  Well the only way to find out is to wait it out.  I would love to see a huge storm on the caliber of 1888, anything less and I would rather have it be spring!
