I've been living up here for a long time. Four years at the Academy, then I lived in Boston for a few months right after I left the Army and in Hartford for a while after that. That was also winter, but it was nothing like this. Then I moved to Hoboken and my current job in August 2001, so it's been what? Twelve-and-a-half years in and around New York? That's a lot of winters. Seen several blizzards, including last year's Snowpocalpse that dumped fully three feet on my little town of Stratford. A few years before that, we had six major snowstorms in one year and thought it was a lot.
But this winter has been a whole 'nother level. In addition to the freezing temperatures from the Polar Vortex, this is at least the fifth snowstorm this year, second this week, and we may yet get one more before the week is out. What the Hell is going on?
Ah well, what can you do?
It's really nice here in the Spring. I'm looking forward to that.
