Mark Twain was right

There is a sumptuous variety about the New England weather that compels the stranger’s admiration — and regret. The weather is always doing something there; always attending strictly to business; always getting up new designs and trying them on the people to see how they will go. But it gets through more business in spring than in any other season. – Mark Twain

It snowed in southern Maine today! Thankfully it was just a dusting. Still…it snowed. In mid-April. That ain’t supposed to happen!

New England weather is busy indeed! I wonder what other devious designs it has in store?

Mark Twain: a man of wit, wisdom, and…spot-on observations.
