Wednesday: Leap Day; Black History Month Celebration at City Hall
Here are five things you should know today in East Providence.
- A mixture of rain and snow is expected later tonight, although little accumulation is expected. See the forecast here.
- Happy Leap Day! An extra day is added to February about once every four years in what is called a Leap Year. The calendar needs this tweak because the earth doesn't rotate around the sun in exactly 365 days. There are some unusual traditions "associated" with Leap Day - read about it here.
