APRIL WAS A VERY MILD MONTH WITH TEMPERATURES AVERAGING IN THE MID 40`S AND VERY
LITTLE SNOWFALL (6.8 IN). PRECIPITATION WAS A LITTLE HIGHER THEN AVERAGE AT 14.17
INCHES, HOWEVER WE STILL DID MANAGE TO HAVE A FEW PERIODS OF SUNNY SKIES. A FEW
LOWS CIRCULATED THROUGH THE AREA BRING BRINGING SMALL CRAFT AND GALE FORCE WINDS
INTO OUR BAY.
