  • I want all winter all the time. I’m looking for apartments in Nunavut right now.

  • 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.

  • @Andrew I don’t think new England is alone in that regard…especially today hahaha
