So far, the huge winter Nor’easter is proving very disappointing. Yesterday afternoon, the Town Hall, library and local school district had all already decided to close today. But by 2:00am it had barely started snowing with maybe a quarter inch (half a centimetre) on the ground, and when I got up at 10:30, it was sleeting and there was still just a couple inches of icy crud. It’s snowing now, but very lightly.
Just out of curiosity…is today supposed to be some kind of holiday or something? Hmm. February 13th, Parentalia (honoring the ancestors); February 15th, Lupercalia (honoring the way they became ancestors ); February 16th, feast of Victoria (the goddess, not her namesakes); February 17th, Fornacalia….
Nope, can’t think of anything. Maybe those Christians are doing something today?
Have a nice Wednesday!
