Spring warmth arriving just in time for break!

While Boston is warming up dramatically this week with a near record high of nearly 71°F this Friday, a cold front is heading toward the east coast, bringing showers to Boston this Saturday. A modest amount of rain is expected, though winds will stay relatively calm. Hopefully this doesn’t dampen your spring break travel plans!

The onset of daylight savings means that it’s been brighter outside later in the day. Get used to the brightness — in related news, the Senate just recently voted to keep daylight savings permanent! To celebrate (or not), make sure to set aside some time this week to catch some rays and to enjoy the warm weather outside.
