So far, about ten inches of fluffy white snow, lots of wind, freezing temperature, but the power is still on! Life in New England is never boring. Here we all sit, tucked in, waiting for at least another 1 1/2 feet of snow during the blizzard of 2013 as Spring is supposedly around the corner.
My brother-in-law Joe says, “Move to Florida and have other things to talk about except the unpredictable weather! Enjoy 80 degree sunshine almost every day!”
I say, “How boring! We love our tumultuous weather, and our ritual hand-wringing about shoveling, freezing our butts, losing our power, and cherishing our generators! Besides, if I moved to Florida, I’d be surrounded by traffic, people and buildings everywhere! We’re New Englanders! We love our mountains, our forests, our ocean, our countryside, our changing seasons, our history, our lobster, our accents, our fireplaces, our N’oreasters, and even our “almost Spring blizzards”!
(Now, this weekend as my family heads up to Sunday River to tackle the slopes covered with a fresh two feet of snow, hopefully my adventurous spirit will prevail, I won’t have heart failure being back on skis for the first time in ten years since my knee gave out, and I’ll remember my own speech about how lovely it is to be wild in New England)……
Here’s to the white stuff,
