Yes, it does feel like spring with temps being up above freezing after having such a brutal winter. With the snow and the cold I think it’s about time for all of us to get a break as this weeks highs are going to be above freezing and in the 40s! We have the possibility of hitting 50 on Wednesday! Now with the warm up comes a concern…flooding. With feet of snow across the state and the warm temperatures the snow will melt rapidly and cause rivers and streams to flood low lying areas. If you have drains in the streets make sure there clear so the water can get into them instead of your basement. We are also expecting some rain this week some coming in later today and watching another system for later in the week which will make the snow very heavy and that could cause roofs or decks to collapse. So you may want to clean those off. 10 more days till spring!
