Nothing Common About This Snow

My husband came home from Boston last night and said, "They're making all this snow on the Common. I wonder if they're filming a movie or something. I can't imagine why else they'd do such a thing."

Well--imagine no more. Turns out that it's the first Boston Winter Festival, being held tomorrow, Feb. 11., from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Apparently it's tied into the 2006 Winter Games and represents a "salute to the U.S. Ski Team." The snow comes courtesy of several Vermont ski resorts, which are co-sponsoring the event.

Ironically, of course, we're expecting a nor'easter tomorrow, with some serious nature-made snow. At that point, the manmade stuff will become what we call at work OBE--overcome by events.

Not me--there'd better be a reason my Subaru is crammed full of skis, boots, coats, and poles. Jim would be crushed if we don't have at least a few more weekends of good skiing weather. :-)
