&&
WE BEGAN THE MONTH OF FEB. WITH ONLY A TRACE OF SNOW ON THE GROUND AND WE ENDED IT 
WITH NO SNOW. TO SAY THE LEAST IT HAS BEEN AN UNUSUAL WINTER LET ALONE MONTH. WITH 
THE MAX TEMPS AVERAGING IN THE MID 40\'S DURING THE DAYS AND ONLY DROPPING INTO THE 
LOW TEENS DURING A SHORT PERIOD AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MONTH, I KNOW THAT I AM NOT 
THE ONLY ONE TO SAY THAT IT SMELLS A LOT LIKE SPRING. WE ARE WELL BELOW AVERAGE FOR 
SNOWFALL (-23.2) BUT RIGHT ON TRACK FOR RAINFALL (10.86). WITH CONTINUED WEATHER 
LIKE THIS GETTING THROUGH THE REST OF WINTER SHOULD BE A BREEZE.
