The weather folks predicted rain today. There would be lots of rain with highs in the upper 30s/low 40s. Murky but manageable for a Monday.

It is 11:30 and 2 1/2 inches of snow has fallen since I arrived at work at 07:45. Yay for meteorological accuracy.

I have decided that I must be stupid. Living in this part of the world gives us snow when many Americans are talking about the wonders of spring, gives us the opportunity to pay some of the highest taxes in the country, let’s us listen to politicians croak on and on about how great they are in an accent that doesn’t apply to anyone north of Westchester and gives us the dignity of living in an area known as the Rust Belt.


I dream of desert sand, warm winds and dry air. I’d be downright giddy over a mobile home that has an adjacent storm cellar. I don’t care if I live in a shack the size of an outhouse. If I’m warm, have some sort of job (even though I have to ask “if I want fries with that”) and have my loved ones still loving me, I’m good.

I don’t need Park Avenue. I’ll settle for the Haney place.

Happy first full day of spring!
