It was nothing but warm sun and blue sky during Thursday’s lunch hour in downtown Norwich. Walkers enjoyed 60 degree temperatures and store owners had their doors propped wide open, soaking up what some were hoping was the first sign that winter is finally over.
Soft-Tech Computers Inc. employee Corey Jones was the one exception. He doesn’t care if the nice weather comes or goes.
“I moving to Myrtle Beach Saturday,” boasted Jones, of Greene, who is taking a job at one of Soft-Tech’s new locations in South Carolina.
While Jones may not have a vested interest in the upstate forecast, those who still do hope yesterday’s hint of spring is here to stay.
