One of the many reasons that Oxford is such an appealing place to live is the weather, which often does not receive the proper recognition that it deserves. With seven months having an average temperature of 59 and higher, Oxford’s seasons typically consist of two winter, three spring, four summer and three fall months. Experiencing this Christmas season with the thermometer reaching 77 degrees, winter was far from our thoughts.
According to www.areavibes.com, here are the 12 month temperature averages:
Having lived in New Jersey for four years, the above forecast is most appealing should you enjoy short and mild winters. Occasionally in the NE, the heating season can extend seven months, beginning as early as late October and going through late May as we once experienced.
With this level of Oxford warmth, can spring be that far away? It’s always a pleasant sound to hear lawn mowers “cranking up” in March. In Oxford, we don’t have to wait to see what the Groundhog does in February, as he’s active here most of the year.
If you like snow, Oxford is not the preferred place to live. On the other hand, if your preference is seeing snow on television and in the movies (like me), Oxford just might be your targeted destination. We already have everything else going for us. The weather is just the tip of the iceberg!
