Warm temperatures. Light jackets. Green grass. Right through Christmas!
Today's forecast is for unfavorable weather beginning tonight and continuing right through tomorrow. Word of the day? Ice pellets! (Another bad word!) After the ice storm of 2008, when millions lost power and millions of trees lost their limbs, everyone that hears the word "ice" is as nervous as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs! I cannot describe how amazing a sight it is when as if on cue, like a horde of lemmings, the masses flood the grocery stores to gather the proverbial "Milk and Bread" whenever the forecasters even hint of coming ice or snow.
And this is New England?
I've begun to feel that most of the population has been shipped in from the states that I never think of. Like Oklahoma, Nebraska or Delaware! And don't get me started about winter driving! Is everyone that drives our roads new to New England? Is this your first time?
Well, I for one have had it. Not with the snow and ice. Although the deep cold, I can do without. No. It's the people who act like New England virgins every time the snow falls or when we get a nice sheet of ice turning the landscape into Boston Garden and the Bruins play-offs!
Put all the virgins in the penalty box until Spring - and give me a rest....
