April is a strange month around these parts. I’ve maintained for years that of Buffalo-Niagara’s four seasons, spring is the worst. Summers can be too hot and humid, but are mild compared to the South or the Eastern Seaboard; our autumns are spectacular and frankly, our winters are fine. Really. I’ll take the snow. But spring? It’s always an unpleasant March and April, usually stubbornly cold and stubbornly cloudy and just persistently unpleasant until May.
This April, though, has been…not bad. Not bad at all. It’s been mixed, certainly! But all in all? Not bad.
In baseball terms, May is on deck and warming up, but April has hit a solid single that it’s stretched into a double with some deft baserunning.
Here are some images of April 2021.
