Just a bit more about the weather, then I will stop   7 comments

*By the way, we did it! It is officially the coldest month in recorded history in Bangor. As of the 27th (still waiting on the data from today, the 28th) our average temp was 6.1°. The next coldest was a temp of 8.4° back in January of 1991. In fact, all of the other top 5 coldest months have been Januarys. The next coldest February was in 1993 with an average temp of 11.3°. And don’t even get me started on the snowfall totals. So exciting (unless you hate snow/have to pay for plowing/have nothing else to complain about)! We’re number 4 right now, with 117.1″. We’ll make it into the number 2 spot soon I think which is currently 119.7″. The all time record is 181.9″ and Lord help me if we get there.*

See?  Not crazy.  This weather has sucked.  BTW – that snowfall – all in 5 weeks. Not in a  whole winter like those other years.

OK, maybe crazy, but I blame it on cabin fever.

IT’S MARCH!!!!  So we are only getting 3-5 inches of snow tonight, and there is a chance of snow/sleet/rain on Tuesday night.  I guess we have to endure ice before it all goes away and we see spring flowers  mud.

  1. Stay warm and keep smiling. It will be Spring soon!!

  2. chin up, Spring will be with you soon

    • I hope so! Every now and then, we get a small sign – sun causing dripping in the eaves – but then we go back into the deep freeze or it snows. My sister saw a robin… 🙂 and a skunk 😦 so things are waking up.

  3. No robins in Michigan yet, just more snow. We haven’t had as much snow as you guys -125″ so far this season, and half of that was in November! But it’s snowing with a vengeance right now, and the Blue Jays have taken over the feeders. Oh well, mud season is approaching!!!!!!

    • We got a lot in November, then nothing until the end of January, when as you know, 6 weeks of snow hell began. But it is sunny today, and life is good. After mud comes summer, right?

  4. It will end. It will pass into the history books and, I fear, we will be looking back fondly remembering when it was only 2 degrees and the snow was only 30 feet high.

    • when it is 90 and humid for days and nights on end we MIGHT wish for a winter like this. But maybe not. It will hit the history books, for sure. I keep thinking about Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Long Winter – another one for the history books. May it be 150 years before we have another like this one.
