February Rain

Life-suckingly boring.  Like looking at a bowl of gray jello.  Snow is vastly more entertaining and energetic.

That is all.  Slog on.


About Gerry

I've been covering Connecticut news and sports since 1974. I know, I don't look that old.

  1. Watching the rain
    As it looks for a drain

    Stepping out in the muck
    Great my feet are stuck

    Where is that snow that is white
    That can calm even the harshest night?

    Will it ever snow again?
    Or will it remain foreign?

  2. What’s wrong with this picture? It’s raining there. It snowed here on the south coast of North Carolina this morning. I saw a robin wearing an L.L. Bean red down vest. The golfers were putting chains on their cart tires.

  3. I have friends who moved to N.C. so they wouldn’t have to deal with the snow anymore. They sold their snowblower, shovels, and rock salt. I was doing my best not to laugh while I watched the rain coming down here.

    My mother in NY is complaining of the snow, I keep asking the weathermen here for some, but so far it hasn’t happened in a while. I’ll switch with you on the rain and the snow.

      You’re good….

      • Thank you. That was right off the top of my head. I did the ‘sloshy’ thing this morning in the muck and I felt like my shoes were going to get stuck.

        I do poetry on my own from time to time. I do them from the top of my head. If I had to sit and think about it, I’d go back and forth too many times and get upset with myself.

        I started to save my writings when I was 13,,, talk about being ‘mushy’. LOL

    Gerry, You are right. Snow is more entertaining. I would challenge NBC 30 to stretch out coverage on rain as long as they do on snow! ***Woman at gas station*** “Lady, What do think of this rain?” “Well, it certainly is getting everthing quite wet and it makes my hair all frizzy.” See, not quite as cutting edge as snow coverage.

    I feel so sorry for the truckers…dealing with this crazy weather. Look at 84, in NY, CLOSED for 30 miles!

    You really need Frankie the Fish hanging up on your kitchen wall. That would cheer you up!

  9. I started to laugh when I heard and saw on the news the mention of Tuxedo, NY which is only about 15 -20 (depending on who was driving and the weather) from where I had lived after moving to NY in 1973. Plus I’m getting info that they have close to 3 feet of snow. The news tonight showed Monroe, NY where I had lived as well… in a bungalo – only heat was a stove pipe oven. Then they showed Morristown, NJ which was where I worked before moving back ‘home’ to CT in 2005. I remember that fall I called my dad I was getting pelted by hail and my dad’s response was ‘What do you expect you live in Connecticut now?’.

    I called my mom and told her what I had seen about Tuxedo and Rt 84 and Morristown, and her response was,,, I can’t remember the last time I saw so much snow before. Instead of telling her it was a few years ago, I said I had seen it on T.V. I couldn’t bear to tell her that I don’t even think we had gotten an inch even that here in Middletown. I did however mention that my son took the right time off to be on a cruise with the ‘guys’ this week.

    To be honest, I’d take snow more rather than the rain we have been getting.

    “Eight shades of gray and I can taste the rain
    Oh, how high the lovely have flown
    What led me to this town?”
