First and foremost it’s because I bought 100lbs of rock salt. As a result it will sit in the coat closet in the entry way for a few seasons.
Secondly the temperature is far too high for snow to form – in fact it’s mostly coming down as rain right now. And I note the chicken littles on Facebook aren’t cackling about the white death from the sky.
I was saying the other day – this is the perfect winter. Temps on the overall above 50F, very little snowfall but rain instead. I could get used to this. They are saying within a couple decades the weather in southeastern New England will be more like the weather in Florida than New England. Yay global climate change!
