It's finally happened! We're at least in the mid-50s today, maybe even 60! It feels wonderful!! Definitely 10 degrees warmer than they'd forecast, perhaps the tide is turning. There's so much melting going on, it sounds like it's raining.
Look at the glacial retreat we've experienced:

Look at these happy kids, bouncing away. This, right here, is why I shovel that damn thing all winter long. :-)
It may not look like it, but these snow banks are shrinking. The rest of the week is in the 40s and 30s, but I don't even care. Maybe they'll be off by 10 degrees every day from now on.
Here's the forecast for this weekend. I think the vagueness is perfect Maine:

(weather.com is calling for 1-3 inches but no 40 degree days in their 10 day forecast. What do they know?)
