Point of View: Weather Report

This new storm system, moving from the Midwest to the Northeast, will bring plenty of recriminations, coarse language, and gnashing of teeth

    Today . . .     Mostly sunny, though clouded conditions resulting from a high-pleasure system that moved through the region late may take a while to clear. By noon, however, one ought to be able to face the day, even though temperatures will continue to be unseasonably cold. By midafternoon undifferentiated thoughts of escape can be expected to arrive from the south-southwest, though the disturbance may be of short duration given that everything’s booked anywhere warm.

    Tonight . . . Dreary with snow late, following a broad depression caused by newly mailed episodes of “Breaking Bad,” a mood only slightly elevated by a half pitcher of margaritas and our wishes that Walter White had been our chemistry teacher in high school, for then we might have a better handle on things by now. 

    This new storm system, moving from the Midwest to the Northeast, will bring plenty of recriminations, coarse language, and gnashing of teeth, causing even more trips to the dentist, provided the roads have been plowed and the potholes filled in. Snowfall could accumulate a total of 1 to 3 inches, or, in some areas along the South Shore, as much as 10. The prospect will likely bring with it fitful dreams of impotence and of polyurethane fumes seeping down the hall from the recently redone room, though by midmorning the snow is expected to change to drizzle. (Happy Days!)

    Tomorrow . . . A bit of . . . what? Yes, yet another disturbance moving across the region in the early hours, which promises to bring with it a strong urge, as the skies slowly lighten, to remain under the covers forever.

    Thursday, Friday . . .  A chance for a bit of a blizzard Thursday, though don’t get hot under the collar, you can always play Gin Rummy. Friday may be a much milder day for struggling against entropy, though if Johnna calls from San Diego, don’t pick up the phone.
