Sunny and Warm

Above...this morning's visual from the Hill (regular shot is unavailable for a few days).

It was very nice here yesterday with temps reaching into the middle teens and lots of sunshine.
Things are drying up very good here after the so-called 'harse winter' we had,which really was not evident on the South Shore.We had a basically mild winter with rain after almost every snow storm.There was little no no frost in the ground and there was very little ice on the lakes and rivers.
Today and tomorrow are expected to be sunny and warm.Some showers are expected to move into the area tomorrow evening and persist into Friday.
At this point,we are expecting a sunny and warm weekend.....that'll be something different than what we have had on the weekends for the past month or so.
