Seasonal Affected Disorder

It’s kind of hard for me to discuss anything other than the snow.  We have ridiculous gobs of snow.


That’s our deck furniture.


This is part of my son’s school playground.


See that narrow path?  These pretty much everywhere.  People are scurrying around in these gullies like mice in a lab maze.  VERY CLAUSTROPHOBIC.

It’s starting to feel like this:


At least the snow isn’t sticky…and green.  Did I mention that it is around 0 degrees right now too?  I think that it’s only fair that we either suffer with snow, or suffer with cold…not both.  I shake my fist in irrational outrage!

(…from inside the house, of course…)

I know.  Those of you that live where the weather is reasonable are scratching your heads about why we put up with it.  Why do we?  10 reasons why we persist in living in Massachusetts:

10.  The funny accent

9.  Fall leaves


8.  The Patriots (this year, at least…)


7.  The extreme sport of driving…anywhere…


6.  We like to be surrounded by smaht MIT and Harvard people


5.  Our wardrobes consist of chunky wool sweaters AND flip flops (not typically worn at the same time, mind you…)


4.  The sarcasm


3. The Berkshires


2. The Cape


And lastly…

1.  Bitching and moaning about the weather


Yes, we’re a surly lot here in New England.   Don’t bother visiting until…July?  October?  Just don’t come now.  Only insane people visit from January – March.  The padded wagon should just pick them up directly at the airport.

Looking out of my window at 6.30 am the agapanthus are already drooping with the heat, the temperature is 26c and heading for 38c today and I have two classes to take and people for dinner. You have no idea how much I want to dive into your snow and cool off! Don’t know I’d cope with it for a couple of months though.. Happy shovelling!
