So that was nice a four day weekend,played a little ,worked around the house a little,ate a little(alot),drank a little,relaxed a little,well,you get the point,it was a nice weekend,nice weather.
So felt like rambling.
1.Our non-winter continues,with 6 degrees above normal at this point of the winter.February looks to go snowless with only a trace of snow.This has only happened twice in record keeping.we are currently tied with 1937 and 1925 for least snowy Februarys with just a trace of snow seen at Logan
2.Our sports teams are a mess.The celtics are mediocre at best and Rondo,is acting like a complete idiot,throwing basketballs at referees.
Our Hockey team that couldn't be beaten in November and December,now cant score a goal.
Our Baseball team,well,we know what happened at the end of last season.Don't know if I can climb on their band wagon,still smarting from that fiasco last season.Another Boston Univ. hockey player arrested for sexual assault.The second in 2 months.Anybody else disturbed by the actions of our college sports athelets across the country.
3. Mardi Gras came to noisy and drunk conclusion last night.
4.Another warm week ahead,after a chilly morning,its temps going up this week,may even hit 60 at some point,the series of weeks hitting at least 50 once or more a week continues.
5.Trying to get myself psyched up for home improvement projects this starting sometime next month,most of us on here no what that entails.I will be redoing my family room and kitchen.Going to try to do some of the work myself on the walls and put in a new drop ceiling.

So as February winds down,it has been a remarkable winter.Everyone you talked to is loving this.At the end of last winter people had had it.You talked to a lot of people who were thinking of moving south,if we had another winter like the last two winters.Well,Mother Nature must have been listening and felt sorry for us,because we have had a winter the total opposite to winter last year.
Last year we were running around 2 to 3 degrees below normal,this year we are running as much as 7 degrees above normal.Almost every week has had at least one day at 50 degrees.
So what does this mean in our everyday life,there are pros and cons.
Pros
1.Lower heating bills
2.Less wear and tear on cars.
3.Less injurys due to skidding accidents and falls on ice.
4.no ice dams this year.
5.Frost levels in the ground are much less,so the pothole season shouldn't be as bad.

Cons
Believe or not there is a downside to this winter.
1.With such a lack of snow,unless we get a wet spring,we could be in serious trouble water wise.
2. The contractors who depend on snow removal money are not getting any
3.Winter resorts are suffering,ski resorts can make money,but snowmobile trails and crosscountry sites are closed.
4.Warmer winter means the ocean has not gotten as cold as some years,which may be a problem in the tropical season.
5.I suspect that the tick season will be very bad this year,and certainly earlier to start.
So in all I think most people are glad for this mild dry winter.
