Saying Good Bye to Old Man Winter

saying goodbye to old man winter 2015

 

I don't know about you, but it's been the winter from hell for me!    On a personal note, it started out with news from the Doc that surgery was in order.    That went fine due to the very capable professionals at Tufts Medical Center in Boston and the great and friendly folks at Active Physical Therapy in Bellingham MA.  

 

On a professional note, it started with my client taking a trip to the ER after a long tumble down an entire flight of stairs while viewing a home.    Wet shoes, (thank you Mr. Snowman),  I am sure were the culprit.    It went downhill (and I don't mean skiing) from there, trudging through banks of snow showing "out of town-ers" listings, viewing homes with no heat and, believe it or not, actually finding a skating rink on the INSIDE of a what was I am sure a wonderful home.  

 

While the weathermen were dancing and commanding the airways, the shut down of the T and the loss of business that local shops and restaurants have endured has been just too much this year.    

 

I'm ready for spring.     Don't get me wrong.   I love my new System 2000 (provided and installed by Palmieri Mechanical Services).   I appreciate the creature comforts that this warm system and my heated car seats bring.  

But, I am ready for the humming of central air, the frizzing of my own hair, and the buzzing of small planes overhead.  And, yes believe to or not, I welcome the Boys of Summer.   I don't think I will complain this year when hearing the incredibly boring announcers or the distinct crack of a bat at each and every game that I am forced to listen to.  (Oh yea, Al is a fan.)  

 

To me, March says not just St Patty's day but, "GOOD BYE OLD MAN WINTER".    

 

Let the melting begin but let it go slow.      I am wondering if the waters at my favorite kayaking spot will reach the all time (in my kayaking lifetime) high of April 2010, when we could not pass under the bridge on 109 at the Millis/Medfield line.  I can't wait to get on that river.   As excited as I am for the snow melt and the high waters in the Charles River, please Mother Nature, give these Massachusetts homeowners a break by letting it happen slowly as not to terrorize their poor homes any longer.   

 

Good bye old man winter.  

I can't wait to be showing the exterior of a home, worried about mud vs. snow!  

 (please, don't remind me that I said that come April)

Carol-Ann, I'm all with you and I will not utter a whisper of negativity while I'm cutting the grass this year

I'm ready for spring too.  Warm weather would be so welcome right now, as would actually being able to see my grass.

Hi Chris Ann Cleland.   I'm not sure when we will see it, but it will be a welcome sight for sure.    The snow is supposed to be good for the grass.   Ed Silva will be cutting more of it!

Hi Carol-Ann Palmieri I'll believe there IS a spring when I see it.... there's so much snow to melt.... if it doesn't melt slowly, basements will be where you can drop your kayak.

Hi Barbara Todaro.   Funny, but not.  :) 

 

Hi Ginny Gorman.   Thank you.  Spring cleaning.   That's one thing I haven't started to dream about!
