Which month is the worst month of all? We aim to settle the age-old debate once and for all in this week’s 12-Inch Poll.
As I type this, it’s approaching 50 degrees and it’s raining in the Boston metro. It’s mid-January. This makes zero sense. As you can probably gather, the main metric that will come into consideration as we debate which month is the worst is the weather. And since ROCK 92.9 is a Boston station heard throughout eastern New England, we’ll be dealing with weather in that region.
That’s not to say weather is the only thing being put on the scale to weigh. Holidays come into play, of course. With each month of the twelve, we’ll weigh those pros and cons. Or, rather, I’ll weigh what I believe to be the pros and cons below. You’ll take a look at my notes, respond with your own, then cast your vote.
The Worst Month: 12-Inch Poll
Over the years, my opinion on this subject has changed. November and all it’s gloom-shortened days and bare-branched trees always sent me into enough of a death-spiral to write off the joys of Thanksgiving altogether. But times have changed. And–back to weather again–the climate has changed. January, long a celebration month for people like me who enjoy being outdoors in the New England winter, is now my frontrunner. This rain is really bumming me out. And these mild temperatures are making me downright anxious.
That’s my take to start with. As I said above, I’ve put forth pros and cons for each month below. Thanks in advance for checking them out en route to your casting your vote. If all goes as planned, we should end up with a workable ranking of the months in New England, with the worst one of all sitting atop the heap. Or is it the bottom?
