In February we were buried in snow. Even the diehard fans of winter weather were silenced.

And then I heard about folks begging for a bit more snow to ‘break the record’ for snow falls.

Are you folks for real? Did you forget the hours spent digging out and defending your parking spaces? How about those delays on the MBTA and traffic jams?

There are no prizes for the survivors of cabin fever. And another thing…, breaking snowfall records doesn’t require skill, intellect or training. If anything, breaking the record for snow falls brings us closer to increased global warming! So stop the chanting for more snow!
