Frosty Freezing Frigid Frozen Flabbergasting Fun here in Historic Wooster Square !

Think Pink! Only 88 Days until our Cherry Blossoms will be peaking!

We are fortunate enough that we are thinking pink in the middle of January. After all, the 
Blizzard of 2015 wrapped us up in a tidy blanket of white. But this year, until now, the snow gods had been kind to us. Alas, another blizzard in 2 years was to swiftly and soundly smack our 
Sweet Salient Sakura Square. 
Fortunately, we only got about 8-12 inches of'
light fluffy powdery snow.

We dodged a bullet.

And because people learned their lesson
with the Blizzard Nemo in 2013, people got 
their cars off the streets and or got their
cars towed away.

2015 is a dusting compared to the
38 inches of snow in 2013



When we went to bed, they were saying 18-36 inches
Wrong again? These poor weather people.
I mean, really, how can you believe someone
who can tell with a straight face that 
there is a 50% chance of rain?

We can all breathe a sigh of relief that
we were not buried like Nemo. We have
had enough snow the past few years.

Sure, its pretty and all, but in fact, winter starts getting old somewhere after Thanksgiving.  
A little white around Christmas? 
Sure that's nice, but then see you later Jack (Frost)

A little snow for effect from early January

Here in the Northeast, we have been lucky. We were spared most of all the snowstorms to date, except this one.

We lucked out with the snow (until now) but not the cold. After all, it is January. January for some starts off with a hangover and gets worse. But not always, not this year. Cheryl and I usually don't stay up until midnight, and the month isn't all that bad. Both Cheryl and I have our Birthdays. And then February is a short forgettable month and we are off and running towards Spring!


Think Pink!
