You tell us, are you soaking in these spring-like temperatures or hoping to see snow in the forecast?
Let's face it - it's been a few years since a snowstorm has truly walloped the area, despite several inches in a recent storm. On top of that, the National Weather Service is predicting that local residents can expect high temperatures to stay in the mid-40s for the rest of the week and the New England Patriots may end up playing their rematch with the Houston Texans in sunny, 50-degree weather. So, we have to ask: Have you been loving this break from typical New England winter weather or are you in serious need of snowfall? Let us know in the comments section below.

A second storm is headed to the area and could make driving hazardous on Saturday.
A second storm of the week is headed toward New England and will dump more snow onto the area on Saturday. 7News meteorologists are predicting Easton to get between 4 to 6 inches of snow in the storm that is expected to start on Saturday afternoon and spread into the early hours of Sunday. The good news is that snow removal shouldn’t be a backbreaking endeavour. CBSBoston’s Todd Gutner said the snow will be “dry and fluffy for most,” though he warned that driving could be hazardous at times on Saturday.

The columnist had to fight through the recent snow storm to get to his office. Let's see if he made it!
A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water. ~ Carl Reiner It’s 7 a.m. on Friday as I write this and there seems to be some sort of strange white powdery stuff on the ground this morning. I’m not quite sure what it is, although it does look vaguely familiar. Sure is pretty though! I got up at 5:45 this morning, went downstairs, grabbed my coffee, flipped on the TV and tuned in to The Dennis and Callahan Show on NESN. For those who aren’t familiar with this show, it’s a NESN simulcast of the D & C sports talk show on WEEI radio. Good, mindless banter that fits in well with my depleted mental faculties in the early morning hours. I am not now, nor have I ever been, nor will I ever be a morning person! To me…

How do you rate National Grid's response in Easton during "Snowtober"?
Tuesday, November 1, 2011
We'll be asking Easton Patch readers a different question every weekday. Questions could range from local decisions made by officials, to state issues, to national politics and entertainment. Whatever it is, we want to know what EASTON thinks! For the second time since late August, National Grid, the power company that serves Easton and many other nearby communities, had its hands full after an October snowstorm knocked out power for more than 600,000 Massachusetts residents. After Hurricane Irene, many Easton officials were upset with National Grid's response. Some residents were without power for nearly a week. This time, however, most residents in Easton who lost power had power back within the first day, despite three poles that fell …
