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.
Waking up to 30° should be normal for mid-March. This year though, it feels a bit chilly. Not to worry, we are forecast for mid 60’s on Sunday!
The river still seems pretty low, but the lake level is pretty high. It was reported today to be 10.2″ above normal and 39°. The Ice in the bay has really receded quite a bit in the last day or so, and I think it might be to the bandstand before long.
With the melting snow and ice, I figured I would let people know of the current prices for a fishing license. Unlike registering for a winter sport, the ice WILL melt and fishing will be possible!

I always get mine from Amilyne’s Corner Market, right down across from JP China in the bay. It is a nice family owned place, and I like to support the smaller business if I can. I am getting pretty anxious for the changing season!
