NORTHBOROUGH, Mass. — The weather was just weird in 2012. It started with a winter nearly devoid of snow and neared its end with a hurricane that threatened Halloween.
How odd was the weather for New England? The first school snow day of the year didn't happen until March.
Just to add to the tropical feel of 2012, Hurricane Sandy swept in Oct. 29, blowing down trees and knocking out power all around Central Massachusetts. Hundreds of Northborough residents found themselves without power as the storm raged.
But Halloween went on as scheduled Oct. 31. Kids, as always, had a blast dressing up.
What will 2013 bring for weather? Only Mother Nature knows for sure.
