THE WEATHER REPORT:
"The Weather Report" is a conversation we all have about the weather that goes beyond just the forecast.
It doesn’t come as a huge surprise that northern Maine has snow the first week of April. Maybe more of a bummer as we were starting to see the weather clear up.
If you talk to anyone, they’ll say the snow will melt away in a day or two - and that’s true. But, we’re right there where we will see more sun and warmer temps.
When the weather goes through a transition like this every year, we’re left with the feeling - will it ever clear up and be spring. The answer is yes. It’s just going to take time and we might see some more precipitation before it’s all over.
Flooding remains an issue as we see the melt off. Take measures now if you live in an area where the water can breach. Basement flooding is also an issue if you live in an area away from high waters, but close enough to a wet zone where water can collect in your house. You probably go through this every season, but it’s a good reminder to have the tools and implements you need to dry it up.
As we prepare for the sunshine and milder days, keep in mind the importance of getting outside and getting things done. Soon enough, the hornets and wasps will be looking to make a home. You want to be on that early and often. Left to their devices, wasps will build all day and have a buzzing hive in no time. A good spray that reaches a long distance is only a couple bucks and will svae you from getting attacked.
