Blizzards and the Blues: Winter in New England

Blizzards and the Blues: Winter in New England

In the midst of winter — during a week in which three snow storms, one a possible blizzard, are predicted — do you long for spring? 

As I write this, it’s a cold, but beautiful day. The sun is shining and the sky is mostly blue with wispy strands of clouds. The calm before the storm. For some, the promise of a significant snowfall is reason to rejoice. It means skiing and snowmobiling and sledding and building snow forts. Others dread the thought of the driveway, sidewalks and roofs they’ll need to clear.
