The end result was historic flooding of local ponds and rivers and
homes and cellars and highways and backroads from Eastern Massachusetts
into Rhode Island and Connecticut. It was the wettest month of any month
on my 30 years of record.
The wet cloudy March prevented overnight temperatures from falling
to much and this helped to make this March the wamest on my records with
a mean temperature of 44.1 deg. which is 6.1 deg. above normal.
Croci opened on March 7th., grackles showed up on the 10th;
followed by honey bees on the 17th; peepers peeped on the 18th; and that
woke up the neighborhood woodchuck on the 19th. and then early daffodils
and a balmy 73 deg. Spring day and then the floods came..... March 2010
