No. Actually, that wasn't what I was thinking at all.

Tax time fun? You'll have to refresh my memory on that one.


Stopped and talked to one of the shop keepers last night. He's standing there in his long pants and jacket. "Muy frio" (very cold) I commented. He knew I was being somewhat sarcastic as I was wearing shorts, shirt and Tevas.

It sparked an interesting conversation. A little history, etc. He actually spoke very good English. Self taught - which always amazes me as I struggle with every syllable. Yes. Of English, too.

Wraps up with, "What are you looking for? Where are you going?"

"Ice cream."

Guess its all relative.


How much fell in the last 24 hours?

Reminds me of the time I went to Florida with my 'rents as a kid. We were at Dizzy World catching the little tram thing out to our car in the lot at the end of the night. We got in the cart right behind the driver. He turned to us in his long pants and windbreaker and commented "Kinda chilly tonight uh?" We all looked at each other confused. He asked "Where ya'll from?" "Uh, New Hampshire." "Ah, never mind."

Everything's relative.

I was just commenting the other day that we are at the stage of the year where 25-F feels downright reasonable.


My guess was my yard in the greater Seacoast NH area picked up 6-8 tops. It's been warm and wet and soggy so a lot of that compressed nicely. I'm glad I ran the blower last night and not this morning. I counted 4 accidents on my way down to Massa-taxes this morning. Miraculously, none held me up. One was an 18-wheeler off in the median on 495. Poor bastid.

It's snowing again here in Billerica MA. Although the interwebz say 1" tops for the rest of today.

You don't have to go quite that far (as where you are). Once you separate out the Snowbirds and DamYankees (I am told those are the ones who came down and never left), most of the Conchs here have never seen snow in person. They all do own insulated parkas and mittens for those cold 60 degree days.

Hoping our plow guy has us covered as usual.

Cabin fever? The infamous 'PMS'?

Yeah, I got that. I could seriously use a change in seasons right about now.
