Longtime readers of this blog might remember the weather ghosts of Christmases past:
The Whew, Thank God That Blizzard Came 5 Days Before My Flight (rather than 2) Blizzard Drama. (Also known as: Where Will I Park My Car So It Doesn't Get Towed If There's a Snow Emergency While I'm Gone Conundrum.)
The Ha Ha, I'm Not Flying to MSP Until January! Evening but I'm Still Going to Drink Too Much Bailey's on the Rocks, because It Still Sucks to be Snowed In.
With those shots of my poor car and memories of inevitable flight delays fresh in your mind, note this very recent photo of the Boston Common heading from the Frog Pond towards the Back Bay and the Hancock tower:
That grass is GREEN, my friends.
Flight to MSP is in 6 short hours. I doubt the plane will require a de-icer. And I couldn't be happier.
Merry, merry Christmas.
