Everybody talks about the weather...

Noted and Blogged interrupts your regular program to inform you:

It is snowing.

I used to live in western Massachusetts, which I truly loved, but snow before Thanksgiving was not why.

When I moved here, I thought with happy relief of the relatively snow-free Cape Cod winters everyone (except fishers*) talks about, which one could make a case, if one were so inclined, have not materialized in my almost-a-decade on this fair peninsula. One could.

On the upside, we have had some remarkably warm Decembers before the blizzards dumped down on us. And a good foot+ of snow once a year or so is fun.

And, as we say here in New England, if you don't like the weather, wait a minute. Now, for example, the sun is shining.

We return you to your regularly scheduled program.

*why aren't they called fishers? Hunters aren't called "huntermen," and fishers aren't all male. While we're at it, why is a fisher cat called that, if it has nothing to do with fish or cats? Something to do with the French. Mais oui.


  1. Yeah, it was freezing here too (on the North Shore of Mass). The snow was nice, nice to feel Thanksgiving and holidays coming, but I surely enjoyed last Monday when it was sunny and 65 degrees on the beach!
