Navigating Spring in the Northeast

If you’re ready to sing spring’s praises, you’re not alone. Especially in a year where many of us are ready to spend more time outside and in the company of friends and family, it’s no overstatement to say that spring simply can’t get here soon enough.

The only question, then, is if you’re adequately prepared for the seasonal change of temperature. Particularly in the Northeast, you have a couple of climate factors to keep in mind for the coming months… 

The Early End of Winter

The end of the winter season is often highly anticipated and, for those who live in the Northeast, you might not have to wait much longer. In fact, did you know studies show that the Northeast has slowly become both warmer and wetter earlier in the year? That is, “the spring-like warmth has snow melting faster and plant growth starting sooner,” according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

And for you, that means increased sun exposure for a longer period of time in the year.

Thus, providing yourself with adequate shade from the sun is not only a matter of lasting comfort, but personal protection. That’s why equipping your property with state-of-the-art outdoor awnings may be beneficial — because the earlier the winter ends, the sooner you’ll start feeling the heat… as will your energy bill.

Say “Hello” to Seasonal Showers

April showers may bring May flowers, but where does that leave you? After all, you may expect the sun, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t also be prepared for the rain.

Especially with areas of northern New England, Maryland, and West Virginia seeing more than a 200% increase in precipitation during spring, as reported by the Northeast Regional Climate Center (NRCC), the rain may be an obstacle to your otherwise ideal outdoor day when all you want to do is relish the return of warm breezes.

Thus, optimizing your home with a custom awning or patio canopy will allow you the opportunity to both bask in the comfort of your temperate outdoor environment and stay dry from the annual showers. Plus, with the gentle pattering of rain above your head, what better way is there to swing into the new season?

Blooming Beyond Your Backyard

While the holiday season offers us the opportunity to hunker down and stay cozy with our family against the battering of winter winds, the spring season brings with it not only fresh air, but fresh opportunities to return to the comfort of other friends and colleagues.

So, we understand if you find yourself itching to host a spring soirée out back — who doesn’t want to celebrate a reunion with their favorite company? But in this case, outdoor protection is essential in keeping the party going. Not only is constant heat and sun exposure sure to impede on the party, and the last thing you need is a loved one suffering from sunburn before summer has even approached.

Simply put, navigating spring in the Northeast means nurturing your family with adequate outdoor protection, be it from the sun, rain, or any other elements that threaten to thwart your seasonal plans.
