Maureen O'Hara was startled to look up this evening and see something other than the steady blue the Old Hancock weather beacon had been locked into since the start of pandemic times. Anybody need a refresher on the rhyme?
Oddly enough, it went to flashing blue at 11:00.
Steady blue, clear view
Flashing blue, clouds due
Steady red, rain ahead
Flashing red, snow instead*
*if flashing red in the summer, the Red Sox are cancelled
... and yet, at midnight, it’s back to steady red.
but that bit of doggerel is a terrible mnemonic.
I could only ever remember
Nanananananananananana Magoo man. Hark Magoo spies the flaming light of distress in the fair city of Hancock building. Magoo shall descend upon said city and bring justice and peace to those in distress. Magoo.
Any update on what that was blue last night?
