Boston is recovering nicely from this delightful snowstorm called Nemo. Everyone is thankful for temperatures in the mid 40’s as the sun speeds up the melting process. All of the melting has given me a steady stream of water accompanied by aggressive drips that are smacking my windowsill. It sounds like A.) 100 birds are tap-dancing and B.) It is making me have to go to the bathroom every fifteen minutes. Unfortunately, neither is pleasant after a significant amount of time. As the temperatures begin to creep up and we start to leave our gloves, scarves and earmuffs behind the transition from covered up snow bunny to bright and sunny fashionista begins.
