Montgomery Locals 1.15.2020

By Staff | Jan 15, 2020

This past weekend saw some unbelievably warm temperatures in Montgomery. Despite the fact that it was only about a third of the way through January, the mercury shot up to 61 degrees in town on Saturday. It felt great to leave the house on Saturday in a light spring jacket rather than a winter coat! Shockingly, it wasn’t even record-breaking. Warmer temperatures have been recorded in the past. I hope it keeps up I would love an early spring!

We have definitely seen some strange weather in the past few years. The bank in the Narrows is covered with lots of trees that have highly exposed roots from all the soil that washed away during the perpetual downpour that was the summer of 2018. As much as I hope the warming trend continues, I know that we’re probably doomed to suffer a few more snow and ice storms before winter is over. But the one good thing we have to look forward to is the fact that we are gaining daylight every day, and we get to “spring ahead” and enjoy daylight savings time in less than two months.

Now that Christmas is over, I’m ready for summer.

invincible summer.” – Albert Camus
