Winter Wonderland or Frigid Wasteland?

Apologies for the delay in postings on the blog! The holidays were especially crazy with travel and work, but with 2011 in full swing, that should hopefully change.

Speaking of which, the winter has been especially brutal this year. This is my first official New England winter. And to be honest, it kind of sucks. I’ve not experienced a real winter in 16 years, which was right around the time I moved from Minnesota to Texas. Visiting Minnesota in the winter every year since did not really prepare me for the onslaught of Arctic Blasts that have hit Massachusetts so far.

It is only the end of January and already the city has experienced two full blizzards and a host of snow storms. Tonight will be the first night that the temperatures officially drop below zero. According to a post from the MetroDesk of the Boston Globe, the wind chill is set to hit negative 25. Wowzers.

I do realize that winter is one of four seasons that I was going to have to live through upon my move but seriously?!? This has been rough!

Here’s a great question though: how do you deal with the winter year in and year out? As someone who’s going to be staying in Boston for a while, what is the best way to survive the season? Leave some suggestions in the comments box and I’ll try to participate in some truly New England winter experiences before the season ends (and document the journey along the way).
