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.

March 21, 2016, ‘First Day Of Spring’ Snow In New Hampshire Lakes — WMUR Was Wrong.

Much more snow that I was led to believe. I didn’t watch the WMUR forecast last night — I was too engrossed in watching the highlights of Sri Lanka v West Indies on Willow TV.

But I did interrupt by #ICCWT20 viewing to catch the forecast on Saturday night. WMUR was emphatic. Snow would be to the South and East of Concord. Well we are to the North of Concord. So I was surprised by how much we got. Probably 4″ and a bit more in some places.

I shoveled BECAUSE I like to shovel. I have never denied not being strange. It was easy to shovel. Very light, very fluffy. It was beginning to melt as I was shoveling as the temp. was rapidly rising above 32°F. It was nice. Gave me an excuse not to run since it is an hour of shoveling or ‘the run’. The dogs were OK. I took them for a walk and they could play outside while I shoveled.

Sandwich Fair, N.H., 2015 — Featured Shows.

From ‘wunderground.com’ for Friday (today).

We are getting a lot of rain and it appears that it will not stop till tonight.

Of course, Sandwich Fair, 2015, will happen BUT the grounds will be soggy, particularly the on-field parking. We know. In the 20 years (or more) that we have been going to Sandwich it has rained a few times. In 2005 it bucketed down and they actually closed the fields and people had to park on the road.

Just a heads up. Much of the main fair ground is paved and as such will be fine.

The rides are open tonight, at cut-price but the rain might put a damper on that.

Enjoy and remember it is a 3-day event. I checked the weather forecast. Good weather on all three days. SMILE.


Did WMUR (Again) Intentionally Mislead Folks About 4th Of July 2015 Weather Forecast In New Hampshire?

All week, leading up to the 2015 4th of July (long) weekend, the WMUR weather forecasters were tripping over themselves to proclaim who perfect it was going to be — hot with lots of sunshine BOTH Saturday (the 4th) and Sunday. Even at 9am Saturday morning they were claiming that it would be a perfect day — while I am looking out of the window seeing lots of clouds.

Well, at least in most parts of New Hampshire, we had a fair amount of clouds, rain (albeit it light) and COLD temperatures for most of Saturday afternoon. Yes, the rain, fortunately, ceased before most of the town firework shows BUT most people had to contend with a not very nice 4th of July afternoon.

This morning, on Sunday, Josh Judge, WMUR’s megastar weather forecaster, APOLOGIZED for getting the forecast SO, SO WRONG. Check it out here >>>>

Well, to be honest, I do NOT buy it. WMUR has done it before and I have mixed feelings about it.

As a Lifetime Granite State Ambassador (GSA) I have a vested interested in promoting tourism in New Hampshire. Yes, we need EVERY cent we can get from those from other States.

So I fully understand the motivation to mislead tourists about the weather on KEY holidays. I just worry that in time THEY will cotton on!

I have been watching this for years — with WMUR. To me it has become kind of a joke.

WMUR consistently, across all 4 SEASONS, will dupe folks into believing that we will have good weather during important holidays — whether it be the 4th, Labor Day, Columbus Day, New Year’s (for skiing) etc.

So I am just giving you a heads up. Just be leary about WMUR weather forecasts when it come to HOLIDAYS.
