More Snow

Winter is usually a medium inconvienience here on the south coast of Massachusetts.  Usually a moderate snowfall is long gone within a few days and bicycle riders especially bike commuters have few complaints.  This year however is very unfriendly to bicycling.  Boston for example has accumulated over six feet of snow. The constant cold has prevented any snow-melt between storms and the city has run out of places to put the white stuff.  Boston has resorted to trucking the snow to be dumped in the river.

The SouthCoast of Massachusetts has fared much better having only accumulated thirty inches, more or less. One of the consequences is that everything and everyone has slowed down and there is very little complaining.  “It snowed a lot but it will melt in time” is the battle cry for now.

It’s not unusual to get a few feet of snow annually.  What is unusual is to have it all at once with no melting between storms. It’s winter and the four seasons is why we live here.  Snow is part of the lifestyle, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
