February is a rough month. Winters are hard in Boston in general. There’s snow and rain, freezing rain, bitter winds. And it’s LONG. Which makes February all the tougher. By the time we get to February, it’s been cold and gray and miserable for about 3 months. Personally, I’m of the belief that each season should be 3 months long, because 12 months in a year divided by 4 seasons = 3 months each.
Clearly I live in the wrong place for my math to be true.
Sure, we get a few freakily nice days, but when it can snow in October and April, it’s really hard to remember those. We’re not slowly easing out of winter into spring by the time February rolls around. Remember in 2015 when Boston broke the record for the most snowfall in one season? Winter was going ok until February dropped nearly 65″ of snow on us. And this is why we Bostonians hibernate through the month.
You know what makes everything better though? Pie.
