Baby, It's Cold Outside !

At 8:30 this morning I was dressed in slippers, a pair of pants and a tee-shirt when I stepped outside to carry a bag of trash to the garage!

Aaarrghh !

It was only 35 degrees! I felt that maybe I should double check the calendar. When I went to bed last night, wasn't it the last week of April?

Northern Vermont, New Hampshire and parts of Maine were hit with six to eight inches of heavy wet snow! It is the last week of April, isn't it?

To Al Gore I say: "Take your global warming and shove it where only your constituents will kiss you!"

Of course here in New England there is always some wisenheimer (sp?) who's gonna come out with "If you don't like the weather in New England, wait a minute."

I seemed to remember that comedian Jeff Foxworthy once came up with some quips for New England using his 'you might be a redneck if..' routine.
You might be from New England if ...

If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time.

If you've switched from 'heat' to 'A/C' and back again in the same day.

If you know all four seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction.

If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car.

If you find '10 degrees' a little chilly.

If driving is better in winter because the potholes are filled with snow.

If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

If going south to escape the winter means anywhere on the map below New York City.

If there's a Dunkin' Donuts on every other corner.
Wait a minute! Imagine that!

It's going to be in the 60's tomorrow and in the 80's for the weekend.

It's cold here too and I live in California. I'm wearing sandals, but my feet are freezing. I just refuse to put on winter shoes. I'm guessing in a few days it will be over 100 degrees. That's what usually happens.

Have a terrific day and stay warm. :)

The weather is crazy all over the country. I know some places are worse than here.
