It’s Finally Spring: Or is it?

By: Delia Geyer/ Content Editor

Spring officially began March 20th, but here in Northeastern Pennsylvania, the snow is ever-present, and seems that it will be here forever. However, the sun has been shining for the past three days, and has been a pleasant change from the dreary winter.

The temperature is slowly climbing higher each day and reaching the 40s and 50s. The remaining snow is finally melting away, and the birds are beginning to chirp in the mornings. Signs of spring are practically everywhere you look, but is “spring” as we know it really almost here?

As for the rest of this week, the high temperature of each day are predicted to be above 45 degrees, and even reaching 60 degrees later in the week. Most of the week will be around 50 degrees with occasional rain showers. However, next Wednesday the temperature is going to fall again, resulting in a high of only 37 degrees.

While there are rumors of more snow-showers occurring in early April, many people, including high school English teacher Mrs. Aimee Krause, are hoping that the snow is over until next winter.

She says, “I feel that the only days of the year that snow is acceptable are Christmas Eve and Christmas. Other than that, no snow is needed.” She says she is over the snow and the winter weather.

Many athletes are also hoping that the snow will subside. Freshman, Holly Geyer, who is a member of the track team says she also wants it to stop snowing.

Regardless of whether you are welcoming the warm weather with open arms, or hoping the snow will stick around for just a few more weeks, it is clear that the snow will soon be over, and the warm spring weather is on its way.
