Dirty Old Boston

Think You Got It Bad?

Photo sent to D.O.B. by Bobo Leach

No doubt about it. We've been repeatedly assaulted by Old Man Winter. More is predicted later this week even as we clean up after the latest ravaging. Time for a cliche. "Every cloud has a silver lining". John Milton coined the phrase 'silver lining' in Comus: A Mask Presented at Ludlow Castle in 1634. This silver lining came awhile ago as well--36 years actually--but we find it apropos. The lining comes in the form of this photo  taken at the corner of Jones Road and George Avenue in the Beachmont section of Revere following the Blizzard of 1978. Never made the papers or the screen at the time, but this particular Kodak showcases the misery felt by many during that unforgettable time. May the back pangs feel lighter. May the snow removal devices remain unemployed. And may Spring get here already?
