• It’s Springuary 21st!

    • I think it almost hit 80 degrees today in Hoboken.  It said 78 degrees in my car when I spent my usual mid day looking for a parking spot.  My windows were down, my sleeves were rolled up, my hair, still wet from the gym was blowing in the breeze and I thought sure I was transported to June.  How many people ate outside today?

       

      Shorts, Tank Tops, flip flops, skirts, bare legs, babies in carriages, babies dragging their parents to the waterfront, bikes, whatthe?

      and ICE CREAM.  I never saw so many people eating ice cream on February 21st on the streets of Hoboken.  I mean if you weren’t eating ICE CREAM I don’t think you were alive today.  Treasure this day, mark it down on your calendar, put it in a bottle and sell it, cause the ice cream will be but a dream when  those ice storms hit in March.
