Dirty Snow

March 19 2015

March 20 is to be the first day of Spring, but here in the Boston area, and doesn’t have the feel of a new season set to begin, as it has and still is windy as all hell, with wind chill factors at times in the teens. Also, there is snow to arrive on Friday, and in some places it could be a plowable one.

It Doesn’t Make Any Sense

For the past couple of nights, I have seen ads of all things: lawn care. It seems odd to show green grass, flowers, etc., when there is so much damn snow on the ground, and it looks like it will be here for quite awhile.

By the way, we’re expecting another inch to three inches tonight, and then change over to freezing rain and then just rain, early Wednesday morning.

Well Agnes, we’ll just have to grin and bare it until Its finally gone.

With another foot of snow expected to be dumped on Eastern Massachusetts, between now and late Sunday, you can imagine how much taller the snow banks will be.

More Snow On The Way

February 2 is Groundhog Day
How many groundhogs will
see their shadows?

As far as living in
Massachusetts, more
snow is predicted
for Monday.

Talk is, 6-10″,
6-12″, 10-12″,
12″ plus.

Snow is good for
skiers and snow
boarders, but
not so much for
drivers, shovelers,
pedestrians, etc.

I say just grin
and bare it, as
in another month
or two, it will
be just a memory.

Typical Winter

A couple of days ago
two feet of snow got
dumped upon us.

Today, snowing
lightly, lazily.

Now, the streets
are starting to
get covered again,
the wind is kicking
in, the snow a bit
heavier, the temps
are slowly dropping.
The air is getting
colder.

Just a typical
winter day.

Still Snowing

The storm that started yesterday is still here. The Greater Boston and Worcester got hit the hardest. At 9:00 pm, in the city I live in, there must be at least two feet of snow. New York City escaped the brunt of the storm, but Eastern Massachusetts got the prize. That’s it for now, as the couch is calling for me.

Mother Nature

It seems that mother nature has a problem.
The problem is, she must have a very itchy scalp.
With all the dandruff falling from the sky above,
it looks like she needs a good shampooing, with
a good rinsing.
Then a apply some conditioning, then rinse
and repeat.
Now, all this dandruff is landing on planet
earth, and are the ones who have to deal with it.

When the weather warms up, then a real good
rinsing will commence, and then it will wash away
all the built up dandruff, that she wanted to
share with us.
