Are you feeling the heat, Boston? While it might make for a sweaty commute, at least it doesn’t require scaling six foot high snow piles while trying to catch the bus (thank you, February). Instead of reminiscing about cooler times, sip on some lemonade and take a moment to check out our finely tuned weekend agenda for Boston.

I spent all day trying to conjure up a theme for this week’s Preview and naturally, all I could come up with were my usual gripes about work, the weather, and varying ways in which my morning commute annoys me.

But then I made the astoundingly obvious realization that the weekend is the opposite of those day to day stressors. Rain or shine, it’s a time to let go and appreciate the people around you and the city you live in. I’m the last one to suggest that we all sit around drinking mate and singing Kumbaya together, but by all means, use the weekend to forget about all the things that drive you crazy during the week.

This is an odd weather month for New Englanders, isn’t it? Sitting firmly in between winter and spring, any given day in March can mean snow showers, sunshine, or thunderstorms. I’ve learned that it’s also the month when we realize just how much winter has broken us down (“It’s 43 degrees outside?! HEAT WAVE!”). I’m finding it truly hard to believe that after spending February slipping on ice and shoveling snow, many of use will be attending Red Sox games or grilling out while runners jog by on Marathon Monday next month. But for now,we remain lodged between seasons; equal parts snow boots and galoshes, North Face jackets and windbreakers.
