BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Up to ten inches of snow tomorrow night? Are you kidding me?

I grew up here and remember one year when we got snow on May 10th, so I can’t pretend I’m that surprised. But just like most of you I bet, I am frustrated.

But I’m old enough now to have learned that frustration at things you can’t control is poison.

So instead, I say, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!

Ten more inches of snow on top of the load we already have? Terrific! Bring it on, Mother Nature!

In fact, let’s not stop with four nor’easters in March. Let’s keep the snowbound/ frozen tundra thing going all year long.

Opening Day at Fenway is often a freeze-out, but playing in high winds and snowfall will add a special element. I figure Chris Sale will be especially hard to hit.

The Marathon will be a unique experience this year if it takes place during a blizzard. We won’t be seeing any record times with the runners wearing cleats, but this may be the only way to keep the Kenyans in check.

And while Heartbreak Hill will be especially tough going up, it’ll be a fast sled ride down.

July Fourth on the Esplanade? Better get there early to snag a spot for your snow cave.

And it’ll be shades of the Snow Bowl in Foxboro when they do the 1812 Overture, what with the spectators throwing snowballs in time with the cannons.

Yes, permanent Boston winter will be different, but we can handle it. We’re hardy New Englanders.

And it offers a great new real estate opportunity – space-saver condos!

Get ‘em while they’re hot!
