Connecticut resident Mark Twain once said, "If you don't like the weather in New England now, wait a few minutes." As I write this, the temperature has risen in my town of Avon to 55 degrees. It has begun to rain and will do so pretty much for the next 24 hours, with high winds that have compelled the local energy company to warn us of impending power outages. Tomorrow morning, temperatures will reach 61 degrees and then steadily drop to 25 overnight. The only good news is that the snow, after turning to slush, will disappear -- until Twain's prophecy about the weather in these parts comes true again, and the cycle repeats itself.
Yet, there will be golf in March, even earlier for a few hardy souls; and there will be a 2021 for all of us much better than the year just passed. To you and yours, have a wonderful holiday season and, above all, stay safe now and in the new year.
