Say It Ain’t Snow!

Just what we need… more snow. And it’s still January at least until Monday. So far, we’ve at least 4 feet (yes, feet) of the powdery white stuff to date and the meteorological winter ends on February 28. One can only hope Punxsutawney Phil does NOT see his shadow come Wednesday morning — Groundhog Day for those of y’all keeping score — because our beloved state can’t afford six more hours of winter, let alone six more weeks. I’ll take the winter chill, but the snow has got to go.


Monday Madness

Do you like driving down the 91 while heavy rain pounds on your windshield? Wind gusts so strong that your poor umbrella doesn’t even stand a chance? Of course you don’t! Well, today, the mercury was well up in the 50s (not bad for a late-January day). That’s the good news. The bad news is: the rain caused water runoffs on already-frozen surfaces, flooding basements and turning streets into ponds. But this is New England. The weather here is unpre-fuckin’-dictable.

Alls I know is I will be forever pissed if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow come next Tuesday, Groundhog’s Day. I mean, didn’t winter come to Connecticut six weeks ahead of time?
