Snow No Snow

Last year nearing
the end of
February, we had
100 plus inches
of snow.
In some places
there were snow
piles higher
than a two story
building.

At this very
moment, there
is no snow
to be found.

An El Nino
weather pattern
will do that
in the northeastern
part of the US.

Maybe next
winter payback
could be a bitch.

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.

I Read On …..

I read on
boston.com
the snow
that is still
on the ground
with the exception
of the real
tall mounds of
it, should be
melted and gone
between March 25
and April 3.

Then dear
Agnes, it
will all be
just a memory.

Just A Thought

With all
the snow
in the
past three
weeks, which
was a
good amount,
there is
one way
and the
best way
of looking
at it,
Laugh!

No sense
in getting
all bent
out of
shape, as
it won’t
do you
any good.

Besides, its
Winter!
Enjoy it,
maybe next
Winter will
be one
of those
small amounts
of snow.

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.

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.

January

January can be:
cold, frigid,
blustery, snowy.

January can be:
sunny, windy,
blustery, calm.

January can be:
time to bundle up,
dress in layers.

January can be:
a cruel month,
with short days
and longer nights.

January can be:
some of the above,
or all of the above.

Tire Track

While I was standing outside, during the middle of the afternoon, I took my phone out and was going to a photo of the snow covering the yews. When I looked to see how that pic came out, I saw this photo of the tire track and the curb to the left of it. The photo was taken by accident, so decided to post it.

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.

Snow

Its been snowing here for the good part of the morning, and you can see the building’s maintenance man, snow blowing the sidewalk. He will be at this throughout the day, as the storm will not be over till sometime later this afternoon.

Snow Covered Park

On my daily walk this morning, I decided to cut through the local park, as the walking was kind of on the treacherous side. Lots of icy spots. I only took this one photo, and it does have a Zen look to it.

After The Storm Photos

Now that the storm has gone up into Maine and the Maritime Provinces, it dumped between 9-10 inches of the white stuff. Here are a few pics to share.

Wet Day

Texas and other states got hit with snow.
Here in Massachusetts, its warm and wet.
Lots of rain, and some wind.
For some, traveling will be a bitch.
Others will just stay home and not have to worry about it.
As Eric Clapton would sing, “Let it rain.”

Remember: It’s still Autumn.
