Rain Over, Spring Returns

blue flowers on the April 1st

It felt like the rain would never end. Early this week I think it poured nonstop for about 48 hours? Seriously no joke it never stopped not even for a 1/2 hour. We went to bed it would be raining. We would wake up it would still be raining. Once it finally stopped on Wednesday morning our cat went crazy running up and down the stairs meowing in celebration. March reported record rainfalls in New England. “The monthly rainfall total for March, measured at Logan Airport (boston airport about 12 miles away), is 13.63 inches. It is now the second wettest month in history with the period of record for detailed reporting near Boston dating back to 1872” via boston.com.

We thankfully stayed dry at our house with just a few leaks in our roof which was to be expected because it needs to be replaced. Overall Marblehead fared well compared to towns in western Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire that experienced extreme flooding due to over flowing rivers.

So now that the rain is over we are seeing signs of spring sprout up in Marblehead. Maybe the rain was a good thing? The daffodils are just starting to bloom. Beautiful blue Scilla flowers are a welcome surprise on my morning walk. Hopefully by next week the forsythia will pop too.

  5. I am not one to mind rain, after living in North Carolina during serious droughts. But after this week, I think I’ve seen enough rain to last me awhile! (I live in Massachusetts, too.)
