Boston Chinatown “Chinese New Year 2018” Dragon Parades Are Sunday, Feb. 25 — BUT, Heavy Rain.

In past years we have had BLIZZARDS — e.g., 2013 for the Chinatown New Year.

This year, for Boston, it is heavy rain, 5″ – 8″ snow for us.

The Dragon Parades won’t be fun in the rain.

Yes, you could watch them from a restaurant, but that is NOT much fun.

Plus, Chinatown isn’t exactly car friendly and parking, even outside of New Year, is hard. So, you really need to walk.

So, a heads up. If you plan to go on Sunday you will get soaked.

They are serving Dim Sum, at China Pearl, on Saturday. I called and checked.

I can’t, however, get any sense as to whether there will be any Dragon Parades on Saturday. I SUSPECT that there might be — because of the Sunday rain. But, I could be wrong.

I Got A Fitbit “Skyscraper” Badge For Climbing 100 Floors Yesterday. Their “Ferris Wheel” Was Too Premature.

Yes, 100 floors — that is about 1,000′ vertical feet.

I am happy. I know I have climbed more than that — hiking in Acadia or Monhegan Island but I don’t have badges from those.

I kind of knew I would reach 100 — because I have modified my exercise regime. I need to lose some weight. It is no longer funny. I am more bloated than Drump.


Tomorrow is my day off when I rest my aging, aching muscles.

Maybe I will try again on Sunday or next week.
