Boston's Worst Weather Year

BOSTON, MA (WBZ-AM) — As meteorologist Dave Epstein points out in the Globe, 2018 will go down as one of the worst Boston weather years in recent memory, no matter what happens in December.

The year started in a historic deep freeze. Even Buddy the Lab didn’t want to go out in it, and she has a fur coat on.

February was unbelievably warm, with two consecutive days of 70-degree readings. Nice, but it turned out to be a cruel lie.

March and April were disgusting, stormy in March, frigid and damp in April. I had Red Sox-Yankees tickets I couldn’t use because I refuse to sit outside in sub-freezing weather for even one hour, let alone four.

And while I’ve always been a fan of the heat (sorry about the pun, if it even was one), this summer was too much. Sitting at the water’s edge down the Cape in July, you couldn’t even catch a breeze.

In 40 years of going down there, I’ve never seen it that bad.

September was hardly a relief, and when the fall air finally arrived it was saturated. We’ve gone on to have the rainiest fall ever.

I know some of you like the rain, but the only good thing I can say about it is that it isn’t snow.

It’s been a freakish weather year, and we’ve been getting a lot of those lately – remember the snowpocalypse of 2015?

But sure, there’s no such thing as climate change.

Besides that, all I can think of is – this is punishment for hogging all the sports titles.

Who knew Mother Nature was a New Yorker?
