Dear Mother Nature:

Would you please decide whether to send biting cold temperatures OR lots of snow? 80+ inches of snow in 17 days AND "high temps" in the teens (with gusty winds) is not exactly a Norman Rockwell winter.

******************************

14 degrees right now, with 20 MPH gusts tossing around our newest foot of snow.

CG this weather and storm after storm is wearing everyone down. When I got sick at the store last week, I couldn't finish my shopping. I want to get back to the store to finish. Can't get out of the house. And if I could, it would take me more than an hour to get to the store. A trip that normally takes only 5-8 minutes.

The Mayor keeps coming on TV and telling us the number of pieces of equipment that have been working around the clock. It is time to call in the National Guard with their equipment. The street along the side on my building, (the side of my windows) hasn't even been plowed since the first snowfall. A lot of time was wasted for the stupid Patriots Parade. The mayor wanted to make sure the fans had a place to stand in the freezing cold. So downtown looks so lovely. But the Mayor doesn't want anyone on the road. So streets that no one is going to walking along or driving are in great condition. While the people who live in neighborhoods like Eastie or Dorchester are totally snowbound. I know who I won't be giving my vote to come next election.

When I got up this morning it was NACITS! Not A Cloud In The Sky. Got to run errands in the sun with temps in the mid-20s. Now? We're about 10 degrees. Tomorrow will be about the same temp with light snow showers. And then the bottom falls out. Four straight days of highs in the teens, lows some nights below zero. Brrr! I have a fridge full of food and all kinds of cooking plans. Staying in and warm, and having fun.

Right now it's 26 degrees and we got a dusting of snow overnight. The temperatures are going to continue to drop and tomorrow is supposed to be bitter cold, but no more snow. At least until Saturday.

Do I need to answer this question? Is a reply really necessary?

How does it feel living inside a snowglobe?
