The Hump

Longtime readers of Gone East will have noticed that I'm big on seasonal milestones. We've reached another one that I like. The Hump.

Many years ago I came across a weather statistic that I liked:

In New England the third week in January is, on average, the coldest week of the year. After that the temps start getting warmer.

I call it "The Hump of the Winter". We're over the hump. Yay!

The parties!!! The parties!!!!

I remember Rick tried to Kick the ceiling.

Lucky I can remember that. The rest is a blur.

Yep, this is the weekend for the famous HUMP PARTY of the late 70's and 80's on the ice. Cooking Hamburgers and Hotdogs outside in below zero weather, big fires, frozen kegs of beer, skating, snowmobiling.

So a hump day means it will be less cold....

It's been cold?
