Spring weather is (briefly) here

As the country digs itself out of the massive snow storms that made their way across the country last week, many have been left wondering when the first signs of spring will appear. For Cambridge, those signs came on Wednesday when the Mercury finally rose above 50 degrees. The clouds parted, the sun shone, and the birds excitedly sang in the trees. For a brief, evanescent moment, the times seemed to be “precedented” again. Another pleasant day is on the way, with temperatures poised to return to the 50s on Sunday. Temperatures are going to drop off later in the week, so get out there and enjoy the nice weather while it lasts.
