Crazy New England WeatherPosted: March 5, 2012
By Alyssa Lajoie
This past Wednesday, weathermen were warning everyone that there was going to be a huge storm coming our way. A reported 4 to 6 inches of snow was supposed to accumulate Wednesday afternoon into Thursday morning. Students throughout Boston were hoping this storm would come and classes would be cancelled.
It was February 29th, why would we actually think that there was going to be a decent amount of snow? We’ve gone this far through the winter without a decent amount of snow (except for Halloween weekend, of course).
Schools started to freak out, letting students out early, and preparing for late delays. The next morning, what did we get? Nothing. A little bit of snow, a lot of rain and just a big sloshy mess.
Waking up the next morning, many people in the New England area were surprised to see that there was still black tar outside their windows. As the day went on, more snow accumulated, but it never stuck to much of anything besides grass and cars.
Next weeks weather report shows us that this weather is going to be even crazier! By next Thursday the weather is supposed to be mostly sunny with a high of 62 degrees, only seven days after this huge “snow storm.”
If this doesn’t explain how crazy the weather has been this winter, I don’t know what does. The weather is fluctuating and who even knows what’s going to be coming next from Mother Nature herself.
