This past weekend looks to have set a few records. Looking at the weather.com website, the previous record was 70°, and we hit 78° yesterday (Sunday) according to them. I would call that a shattered record, and it felt GREAT!
Today, which is the last day of Winter, (according to a calendar, clearly not according to the weather) is predicted to be 62°. The rest of the week is even nicer, with temps looking a lot more like June weather, not March.
I took advantage of the incredible weather yesterday and went to Bear Brook State Park in Allenstown to do some mountain biking. There were a few muddy spots, but not the kind of mud you would expect for the Spring thaw, more like after a day of rain in the mid Summer months.
The trails were in overall great shape, and it was so nice that it seemed like a good day to take a hike with Lyndi at the Morse Preserve in Alton.
The weather was still in the 70’s, even as we headed up the trail at about 4:30 in the afternoon. There were a few wet spots and a real small amount of snow, but it was easily hiked in sneakers as you could get around the puddles and wet areas.
Overall it was a fantastic weekend with some really nice weather and good outdoor activities. With the forecast being what it is, I foresee quite a few more nice outdoor adventures in the future. Get out and enjoy the last day of “Winter!”
