Warmer weather washes in

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, December 1, 2009

A week ago, we were digging out from one of the heaviest snowfalls in recent memory, and kids were making snowmen and careening about on sleds as schools canceled classes.
This week, we’ve traded the parkas for Bermuda shorts and T-shirts as temperatures climbed into the 70s. The sunny warmth has coaxed out cherry blossoms and forsythia blooms, as well as putting some folks in mind to do a little spring cleaning ó on their vehicles if not their homes. Enjoy it while you can ó temperatures are expected to dip again toward the end of the week.
