Citizens of New Haven and Beyond:
This winter has overstayed its welcome. And it has been less of a “failed-to-leave-at-a-reasonable-hour-and-didn’t-even-help-clean-up” kind of unwelcome than the full-on sort of unwanted guest that takes adverse possession of your couch and only gets up to raid your fridge, consume all your liquor (except that Amarula you just can’t get rid of), and use his grubby Cheetos-stained fingers to surf the web for the something that categorized your IP address under the responsibility of the most hardened NSA surveillance team. In short, Just. Dreadful.
But change is afoot, my friends. Signs of Spring’s imminent arrival in the Elm City are unmistakable: dirty piles of snow are shrinking into dirty piles of dirt, hipsters are exchanging their ridiculous winter hats and scarves for ridiculous lighter-weight hats and scarves, and Crown Auto is quietly preparing to ticket and tow your car for poorly-posted street sweeping bans instead of poorly-posted snow removal bans.
And we at PKN New Haven World Headquarters are making two predictions —nay, guarantees— for six weeks from today.
ONE: The city will be awash in non-binge-drinking-related, leafy green.
TWO: There will be no “wintry mix” at PKN#20
