For several years now, New England has beaten Minnesota when it comes to snow.
We can’t even make fun of them anymore, which makes winters here all the worse.
A Nor’easter hit the region today, the kind I remember as a kid and the kind of snow I thought I’d find on a regular basis when I moved to Minnesota.
The kind that makes people on the Boston Common drop what they’re doing and have a snowball fight.
Is there anything the nation needs more right now than a snowball fight?
