Art is the Handmaid of Human Good

Life in Lowell, Massachusetts, USA



Gist and I are not going to Maine next week. Waaaaah. The weather is supposed to be terrible from Sunday to Wednesday: a big nor’easter, flood warnings, snow warnings, high seas warnings, possible power outages, etc. and we decided that with all of the warnings we probably wouldn’t have the best vacation. As Gist said “We don’t want to go, get evacuated and spend our vacation on the floor of a high school gym.” I know it’s the right choice but it is still disappointing. I am really, really, really sick of this year’s weather and the total seasonal delay.

So instead of going to Maine, we’ll be taking day trips and short overnighters. We were going to go to Foxwoods but it’s booked. We are going to go to Western MA and maybe stay in the Hotel Northampton and maybe take another overnight trip. It’s not exactly what we wanted to do but it should be fun anyway.

  1. Why not try Mohegan Sun if Foxwoods is booked?

  2. Hi! How does a Spanish vacation sound to you? Lots of sun and exotic sights and sounds, enjoy the luxury of Madrid hotels, wine, tours, spas… I’m wishing I could get out myself. Away from my computer, away from the headache, away from… Wait, how about I take a Spanish vacation?
