I try to focus on the right of the porch, wincing as cold air sweeps over my bare legs, giving rise to prickly gooseflesh. Jose is late – again. As I turn, a flash of red catches my eye. What?

Smoothing headlines and my irritation, I blink. “The Patriots SuperBowl Win of a Lifetime!” was weeks ago.  With a grin, I hold a testament to six snowstorms and eleven feet of snow since February 2nd.
