Weather and Accents

It's a gorgeous day today! The sun is shining - at this moment, it's about 52F, but by mid-afternoon, it should be 70 and perfect. We don't get these perfect days too often, so it sure is nice when they show up.

I know, I know... a lot of you are freezing right now, but we don't get much cool weather, so any at all is sooooo nice.

In my work, I talk to people all around the country and get to experience a whole host of accents. Just this morning, I have spoken to someone in Plymouth, MA...he said something about a snow plow and I thought, sure as I am sitting here, he mentioned a snow bomb. I asked him why he was getting a snow bomb and he cracked up.

After that, it was a call to Atlanta...I could understand these fine folks :-)

One more to southern Louisiana. My Cajun friends...I have to come to love that accent.

Goodness! I started typing this hours ago... I am busy, busy, busy! Gotta' call Pennsylvania and Kentucky now... more later :-)

We're digging out from 9 inches of snow here! If you talked to me, you'd hear a mishmash of an accent...Texas, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, with a tinge of NYC.

that sounds great. there are a lot of endearing accents around the country. speaking of the cajun accent though, have you ever heard people speaking creole or patois? it's beautiful
