136 ways to confuse

"In the spring {in New England} I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours."  

--  Mark Twain

Twain lived for many years in Hartford, Conn., although his favorite place in the world might have been gorgeous Dublin, N.H., near Mount Monadnock. I became very familiar with the town because I had to drive my manic-depressive alcoholic mother there on numerous occasions to be dried out at a famous place for such problematic work known as Beech Hill Farm, on the top of a mountain above the village. Further down the hill was Yankee Inc., which still publishes Yankee Magazine and the Old Farmer's Almanac.

Dublin remains a good place from which to watch the  vagaries of New England weather.

-- Robert Whitcomb
