Photo blog day 175, February 4, 2011

I came across this poem on The Lemon Stand (click the name to go to it) blog-site. The blogger didn’t know where the poem came from and I couldn’t find it either, but man, I had to use it today. Especially after seeing the activity in this photo. It felt like a version of Jeff Foxworthy’s “You know you’re a redneck if…” My line would be “You know it’s winter in New England when you see people snowblowing their ROOF!”.  Happy Friday!

It’s winter in New England
And the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour
At thirty-five below.

Oh, how I love New England
When the snow’s up to your butt
You take a breath of winter
And your nose gets frozen shut.

Yes, the weather here is wonderful
So I guess I’ll hang around
I could never leave New England
Cuz I’m frozen to the ground!

  1. What a GREAT picture! It would have been lovely even without the man blowing snow, but that turned it into something really special. I love the buildings, too – very picturesque. Then there’s the poem- PERFECT!
