Temperatures in southern New Hampshire have risen into the mid-40’s today. As a result the snow pack is melting, swelling the streams, creating foggy patches and revealing bare lawn and a hint of the pool cover. It’s easy to fall into the trap of believing spring is in the air. Hardened New Englanders don’t take the bait. We’ve been here before. The promise of spring is a tease followed by nor’easters and April Fools Day storms.
Sure enough, tomorrow night there’s a snow storm brewing. New England doesn’t let you off the hook that easily. Our personalities match this. One minute you’re getting a compliment from someone, the next you’re the butt of a joke they’re making. Love with a smack of sarcasm. That’s how we roll around here, and it’s easy to blame the weather.
