we did it!
According to the Boston Globe, “Just after 7 Sunday evening, with 2.9 more inches of fresh snow blanketing Boston, the National Weather Service in Taunton announced that the city notched its snowiest winter since records started being kept in 1872.”
This brings us to a grand total of 108.6 inches!
Last month you could hear whispered, often fearful, comments in the hallway about how maybe we should just hope to break the record now that we’re so close. Boston has a long tradition of breaking records and Bostonians are a proud, boastful people when it comes to besting their fellow man. Personally, and I won’t lie, I started looking for jobs in Texas on or about February 15th. I came very close. It was terrible. So you might ask, “Was it worth it?” Let’s see what the man on the street had to say to the Globe when asked, “Now that Bostonians have bragging rights, was it worth it?”
“No, not at all.” “It was a miserable winter, especially here.”
“It’s time for it to stop snowing” “I’m done.”
“Alcohol has been my friend.”
“I listened to a lot of beachy music and pretended it wasn’t happening.”
“We were miserable, but at least now we’re miserable champions.”
