It's Winter In New England... A Poem...

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! 

As usual, my sister in law sent me two funny emails... one I REALLY wish I could post because I haven't laughed that hard in years... and this was the other.  So apropos with the weather around here lately.  I wish I knew who had written it but even Google didn't seem to know.  Thank you, Karen!  

REVISED EDITION: It seems that either this post... or me in particular, reminds Andy of Andy's Place, in his current post, of the Titanic... Poor Andy is really suffering down there in Louisiana... granted he's in the NORTHwest part of Louisiana...  but now I have to link to HIS OTHER link, because I think I really like the way his wife thinks!  And because I think HIS Winter Poem is better than mine, but I wouldn't want him to get an over-inflated head... it might pop and since he is still producing a little blog fodder for me... and I so love teasing him that I think I'll not endanger his being.  Andy, since you have revealed that I remind you of the Titanic, then I'll admit to you reminding me of posteriors and the abysmal depths of the Marianas Trench... just sayin'     :)


  1. I'm gonna guess Buddy Hackett.

    Probably not his work, but it sounds like one he'd break off.

  2. I think I'll try to do some more searching if I can find the time today, but although I found one other place on the internet that had posted it... I couldn't find the author's name.

  3. ahahahhaha! Very funny, and VERY true!

  4. LOL that's brilliant! We've had 2 inches of snow in the past hour and now a whiteout. I feel like I should be in Chamonix instead of DC!
    This is not appropriate weather for Australia Day, either :)

  5. Heh.

    I'm in SOUTHeast Louisiana. And cold. Even wearing socks.

  6. Haha! I love it, especially that first part about the "gentle breezes".

  7. Meleah - My SIL cracks me up sometimes with the most bizarre emails. It's great.

    Oh Wiley! I am SOOOO sorry! Happy belated Australia day! (And I know you guys got more snow than we did last night. Luckily for us, it just skirted us. So... what's your snowman wearing?) :)

    Moogie - Time to break out the bunny slippers. :P

    Lynn - The breeze works well if you're a Popsicle. :)

  8. Being a Yankee girl I have a true appreciation for such wonderful wit and hummer.
