a season of cold

I don't remember the last winter (before this one!) where there was a layer of snow on the ground from late December through March. I live close enough to the coast for the ocean to usually have a warming influence. Not this year!

I was fascinated to see this chart in this morning's Boston Globe showing the average and 2014 temperatures as registered at Logan Airport. Yes, it's been a colder than usual winter. And brr... at the top of the chart is the statement that "Only 20.7% of days in 2014 have stayed above freezing the whole day".

Weather wizard, I think everyone is ready for spring.
