Say it ain’t SNOW!
9 Times It Significantly Snowed in Spring and Summer in Boston.
It’s been a pretty disappointing winter when it comes to snow, so a lot of you are putting the shovels and salt back in the garage and breaking out the beach chairs and sunscreen.
NOT SO FAST.
Oh, Boston, the city that loves to surprise you with a snowstorm in the middle of spring or summer. Just when you thought it was safe to put away your shovels and break out the flip flops, Mother Nature decides to throw a curveball and dump a foot of snow on your lawn.
Yet, there are 9 Times It Significantly Snowed in Spring and Summer in Boston.
It’s truly a remarkable feat to see snowflakes falling from the sky in the middle of June, but leave it to Boston to make it happen.
Maybe it’s the city’s way of reminding us that we can never let our guard down when it comes to the weather.
But let’s be real, snowstorms in spring and summer are just plain annoying.
Who wants to be digging their car out of a snowbank when it’s supposed to be beach weather?
It’s like Boston is trying to see how many seasons it can fit into one day.
And let’s not forget about the havoc these snowstorms wreak on the city’s infrastructure.
One inch of snow can bring Boston’s public transportation system to a screeching halt (thanks MBTA!). So you can only imagine the chaos that ensues when there’s a full-blown snowstorm in the middle of July.
But hey, at least we can take solace in the fact that we’re not alone in our suffering.
Other cities, like Minneapolis and Denver, have also experienced their fair share of spring and summer snowstorms. Misery loves company, right?
So, to all the weather gods out there, can we please just stick to the seasons that are assigned to us?
We’ll happily take our winter snow and summer heat in their designated months. We don’t need any surprise visits from Jack Frost in June or July. Boston has enough surprises as it is.
