March is a funny time here in New Jersey (and likely the rest of the northeast). I like to call it “fake spring”. There are usually a few days over 50 degrees and sunny, and everyone gets super excited and thinks it’s summer! Only to have a 30 degree, rainy streak come the next week. I only make this observation today because this week has been a REAL example of “fake spring”. Anyways, here’s to warmer weather!
