The last couple days have been warmer than usual – about 20 degrees Fahrenheit warmer. It is a welcome respite to the winter beating we got the last couple of months. The snow banks have been reduced to flood and puddles, and we can see the sidewalks again! However, this particular snow bank in downtown Worcester does not want give up and is holding its ground. Maybe another two days of 40F will finally send it off to a liquid state.
