An open letter to the weather wizard...

First, let me say thank you for only dropping a couple of inches of snow on us last night.

You have gifted us with a number of storms over the last several weeks, several dropping large amounts of snow. This all started with a storm tagged as a blizzard on January 27th, and it continued with major snowstorms on at least a weekly basis. Boston is approaching its snowiest winter on record; the record of 107.6 inches was set in the winter of 1995-1996, and so far this year the snow in Boston has been measured at 99.9 inches.

There is a lot of snow on the ground now - don't you think it's enough? Oh, you're right, perhaps one more smallish storm is in order to help Boston tag this season as snowiest ever.

Really, it's OK to stop now. I know spring is still weeks away and I'm not asking for warmth. A little bit of melting and a lot less snow would make me very happy.

What do you think weather wizard? Can you stop now?
