Across New England , tomorrow is the start of a long weekend. It's time to shake off that ugly cabin fever that has become part of our of life around this time of the year.
Tomorrow, there will be a lot of love in the air with the celebration of Valentines Day. Flowers, Candy and Gifts will all be part of the romance between loved ones. There will also be a full moon shining again tomorrow evening and with all that new snow on the ground, it will be a perfect opportunity to get out there and enjoy a different perspective on life. This is the third full moon this year. The first two occurred during the month of January.
Just a little bit more of that "FWI" stuff, the heaviest snowfalls of the year, traditionally happen this month and this year, we seem to be living the life. The native American tribes often called February's full moon the "Snow Moon". Other tribes referred to it as the "Hunger Moon". The reason it was called that was that the harsh weather conditions made hunting very difficult. That one sound's like my own Ground Hog's Day excuse.
If you want to think about something different to do tomorrow, how about some star gazing and moon watching? It would make for a great experience to just get out and enjoy the night sky with all that new fresh snow.Enjoy a totally different perspective before your dinner date for valentines day. Bundle up and enjoy the night-time sky. Don’t forget to bring a large hot cocoa while you and your honey search for a shooting star to make a wish. The full moon should reach the crest of its full phase pretty early, around 6:53 p.m. EST.
This weekend, there will also be another "free entrance days" courtesy of the National Park for all properties, this will also include the museums. The dates for this year are February 15-17th. For a National Park facility near you, check here
Enjoy your long weekend and for some of you, the start of the winter vacation. After you finish the shoveling and clean up that will happen later today.
