It’s Tuesday, which means we’re slowly approaching the halfway point of another week.

Hopefully, everyone had a wonderful LONG weekend and enjoyed celebrating George Washington‘s birthday.

As for today’s weather, it will be overcast – you can expect some rain, fog, and mild temps for the most part, which means we are inching closer to spring and warmer weather.

Have a wonderful day, and remember to smile, laugh, and drink an extra cup of coffee (like I do!).

  • The Boston Bruins will enjoy one more day off before visiting the Edmonton Oilers tomorrow, Wednesday, February 19th for an 8:30 p.m. puck drop. Boston has won its last three outings while Edmonton has won three of its last four contests.

It’s Friday or as we call it, ‘Fri-Yay’ – woo!

It is BRUTAL outside today, so make sure to bring an extra hat and gloves when you go out for a second (or third) cup of coffee. Luckily, this cold weather won’t last long as Boston’s mild-winter returns Sunday with temperatures falling just a tad bit short of 50 degrees.

Have a wonderful weekend – make sure to do something special today for Valentine’s Day and remember to smile, laugh, and eat some chocolate!
