Spring? No… Still Winter.
To put it bluntly, the weather around here has been weird. Really, really weird. Last week, I was out playing lacrosse on the turf sweating my face off in 80 degree weather. Sunshine, blue skies, shorts, tee-shirts, and everyone was sitting out around campus in the sun. And then the weekend came. It started with a little bit of rain and a minor temperature drop. A week later, there’s snow on the ground again and the temperatures have been hovering around freezing for days. Needless to say, everyone on campus is bummed about the weather. If you happened to be walking past the turf field yesterday around 4 pm, you would have seen quite a few less than thrilled “lady laxers” shoveling, raking, and sweeping snow off of the turf. Spring in Maine is never a quiet or gentle affair, but living in Maine for my entire life, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the weather in March be this erratic. Other than the weather, everyone is happy to be back on campus for the home stretch of the year and spring is in full swing. Everything is starting to come to a close, but at the same time busy-ness is ramping up. Anyways, see you next week, hopefully with pictures of beautiful spring weather (without snow).
think spring and see you soon!
