This year the weather at Boskone was springtime sunny and springtime temperature weather-as opposed to last year’s Snowmaggedon.
Weather is a crapshoot–this year the weekend Boskone is usually on, broke some cold weather records for chill,but the following weekend, was quite a bit above average temperature for mid-February.
Rotten or good weather can happen anytime–I was on a business rip some years ago to the panhandle of Florida and the afternoon daily thunderstorms were so bad they shut down military flight operations and equipment testing. Hurricane season starts in June and goe until sometime in the fall. Hailstroms, rainstorms, snowsstorms, windstorms, tornadoes… they hit when they hit.
At least New England’s prepared for -some- snow in the winter–as opposed to areas which get crippled when there’s an inch of snow falling fro the sky to the ground!
