Happy Monday, dear reader(s)!  As our local fans know, it’s really friggin’ cold here in Beantown!  Witness:

It was -3 degrees AFTER a slight warm-up this morning! PS Don't worry, my car wasn't moving at the time this picture was taken.

So cold, in fact, that the news channels sent reporters to my train station this morning!  But when they tried to interview the miserable commuters like me who had been waiting over 30 minutes for a train that wasn’t announced as delayed, they found precious few takers. 

Could be because our faces had lost feeling and our mouths were frozen shut.  Or could be because, like the temperature, Bostonians have been declared one of the top ten “frostiest” city dwellers in America by Travel & Leisure Magazine!

Yes, it's cold. And no, we DON'T want to talk about it on live television.

Either way, we weren’t talkin’ without some complimentary hot coffee!

Stay warm, folks!

  1. Too cold to comment!!!
    And since I spent much of my life in Boston as did several of my kids and cousins… and we are all very friendly kind people … Wha chou talkin’ bout Travel and Leisure Magazine?????

    • I know! We’re such friendly and delightful folk. Travel & Leisure must have conducted their interviews after the Pats lost or something… Harumph!

  2. All I can say is WOW!! That is SERIOUSLY cold!!! We will try to send you some warmth from San Diego 🙂

    • Thanks, Lily! Apparently you might also want to send us some better attitudes to go along with that weather 😉

  3. They have to try and interview folks because cold air doesn’t make a very compelling television picture.
