Memorabler Spring

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

While every spring in Dreamtown is memorable (it’s Dreamtown, after all), this one was memorabler than most.

• Last month was the warmest April in 89 years and the second-warmest in 140 years of record keeping.

• The snowfall season this winter … was the shortest ever.

• The 84-degree high on April 3 was not only a record for that particular date but the warmest ever so early in the year.

• The past two months combined for the warmest March and April in 65 years and the fourth-warmest March and April ever recorded.

And it is, of course, another beautiful sunny day today.

Expanding Waterfront

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

What area comes to mind at the mention of Buffalo’s waterfront?

Is it the marina?

Or maybe the “canal side” project?

Time to start thinking about the NFTA Boat Harbor, too. Break out the bikes!
