Nothing was truer for February than the proverb “when it rains, it pours.”

Mud season may have come early this year, or it could just be an episode of early mini-mud.

Though January has just begun, the month has gifted us with a whole new vocabulary.


A blustery overnight storm that passed over the Vineyard Sunday and Monday downed trees and roughed up seas. Ferries were cancelled for most of the day, but began running again at about 5 p.m.

Over time, it seems that February is warming faster than other months — perhaps it should be renamed Marchuary.

As long as there is at least six inches, there is life between the snow and earth.
