A friend of mine sent this to me at work. Now, while I know the temps are colder in New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine... and many other states, I still feel like I get to joke about it as well because MA is so close to their borders (if not touching them!) And, this winter has not been fun --- temperature wise. (It still bewilders me why anyone would consider living north of NH during the winter. What are the Canadians thinking?!!)
Anyway, I thought it was funny and had to post it. I think it's true... except for the last stanza. Fortunately, we've had two hour delays more often than for 50 degrees below! Can I just add that this weekend it hit 45 degrees and I walked to church because it felt like SPRING!!! :)
