Massachusetts is facing a mammoth budget shortfall due to uber over-spending on the Big Dig. One of the cutbacks chosen to remedy the money squeeze is snow removal during storms. Secondary roads get little or no attention at all. Traveling ain't like it used to be.
Which brings us to today . . .
Last night, before I went to bed I listened to my weather man one last time: Three-to-five inches of light, fluffy snow. Accumulation inconsequential. A prophet he is not -- forecast was way off! As it turns out we have about 7 inches on the ground, and it's supposed to snow throughout the evening into the wee hours of Martin Luther King day. Five-for-five! We have had 5 Sundays in a row with inclement weather of some kind! Once again, we had to cancel services today -- that's 2 of the last 3 Sunday services!
