The first official day of spring was Tuesday, but it sure doesn’t feel like spring to many Americans.
Heavy snow is expected in Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington from what is the fourth nor’easter in the last three weeks. Thousands of flights have been canceled, and many schools in the Northeast have been closed.
But in some other parts of the country, we are seeing glimpses of good weather and hopefully a pleasant season still to come.
