    Ah, the perennial New England past-time of yearning for whatever season you’re not experiencing.

    I’m eventually moving north so I can have more winter and more snow. I would much rather weekly snow storms than 90+° days with 80+% humidity.

    The crazy thing is, it hasn’t even hit 90 yet this week. Ugh.

    I don’t go by the temp at the airport. I go by the temp my car tells me and what my outdoor thermometers tell me at my house. It’s been 90+ in Providence.
