Tag Archives: our January thaw?

VAGARIES OF MASSACHUSETTS WEATHER

IT WAS nice and cold,

But the fifties this weekend we’re told…

Bouncing around

In winter we’ve found

More likely to foster a cold.

Tonight we expect rain,

How long it will freeze can’t say…

Supposedly warm

By tomorrow’s form,

Much snow will wash away!

Is this our January thaw,

Before February’s cold and raw…

Massachusetts waits

To see if it skates,

Until Spring flowers grow tall!

Began raining by this time,

Slushy sidewalks are slimed…

Slippery-wet

It’s warmer yet,

Temperature’s on the incline!

AN “EARLY SPRING DAY”

AN “EARLY SPRING DAY”

At the end of this month THAT’S how it felt,

Piles of snow continued to melt…

Roads were dry but for runoff streams

But nothing in New England

Really is what it seems;

The end of January

Two thousand sixteen

And we will be living

A warm winter’s dream!

(But…for how long?  😀   )
