It has long been said about New Englanders that we know how to appreciate good weather, because we get so little of it. This has never been more true than over the past month. The wettest, grayest, most depressing month on record, has tried the patience of even the hardiest residents of Midvale Road. If some are starting to dream openly about moving to California, or Hawaii, or even the western suburbs, who can blame them?
The good news is that electricity bills are down at 21 Midvale, as the air conditioners have yet to be brought down from the attic.
