Winter of '14 Continues to Grind Along
Posted on: 03/04/2014
By  Mike Cullums
It's the winter that will not quit. After weekend ice and snow, low temperatures this morning were in the single digits. Salt supplies dwindle. Street surfaces fall apart. Government agencies' overtime budgets are out of control.

And some businesses are suffering from a steep drop-off in business. Restaurants and taverns are among those hardest hit, as people choose simply to stay inside. Retailers are turning away customers looking for gloves, salt and shovels, while spring clothing and planter kits sit, ignored.

Sad to say, the latest long-range forecasts do not show a lot of promise. The National Weather Service 10-14 day outlook for the region calls basically for more of the same: below average temperatures and above average precipitation.

The average high for early March is in the upper 40s to near 50. We may reach those average temperatures by Saturday.
