The February Blues

February has to be the worst month of the year. Its so bad they shortened it. In New England it is the absolute dead of winter. Even though this year we didn't really get winter started until February (very warm Dec & Jan.) it still seems oppressive. Thank God its almost over! March may come in like a lion and go out like a lamb and it too can be a rotten month-at least the first day of Spring is tucked in there.

As you may be able to tell, its one of those snowy days the world is deprived of the delicious doggie delights from the Hot Dog Truck. A snowy day equals no business so I've been playing with my 2 year old (she didn't go to daycare today) and surfing the net while she takes her early afternoon "night night." In a few minutes, I'll have to go shovel (AGAIN!)

Life as a Hot Dog Man in the winter in New England is a tenuous existence. The elements keep a large portion of the clientele away and make for uncomfortable working conditions, even with the heater on. The reason I stayed open this winter was to keep my spot. The place where my Hot Dog Truck is parked is considered an A PLUS location for such a venture. Once a week or so a would be Hot Dog Man inquires about the availability of the spot and my landlord has said I don't need to give him notice as he's got 4 or 5 guys who'd be happy to take over the spot. So I shiver and suffer the cold and the slow business days with visions of April (thank God only a month away) when the crowds will be out, the dogs will be flying and the almighty dollar will reacquaint itself with my pockets.

In the meantime, I'll be working on some other projects online.......
