Was It the Warmest February Ever in Portland?
Well, it only took until noon today for Portland to break the record for warmest March 9th ever. The previous record was 55 degrees. Today we CRUSHED the record, as Portland hit 65 degrees. Sanford was in the 70's. The Sanford High School tennis team actually practiced outside. Go Spartans!
THEREFORE, WE HEREBY PROCLAIM...WINTER IS OVER!
