“I did not like the frigid cold a few weeks back I’ll take the rain over the snow and the 40s and 50s,” said Karen Remilard of Southampton told 22News.

Because of the warmer air and recent rain a lot of the snow that fell has melted away.

There’s a lot more bare grass now than snow-covered terrain. The only snow we’re seeing Tuesday night, is where it’s piled up from the plows.
