Boston Weather: 41.0°F | Mostly Cloudy

Weather: Mood and Weather

By Brian Loux
NEWS EDITOR -- Nowhere is the theory of community mood influencing the region’s weather more evident than in Boston. For instance, reveling in the fact that the Yankees suck and were beaten by the wild card Anaheim Angels in the first round, Boston will experience the sunny and warm Tuesday that coincides with such feelings of glee that befit the destruction of a dynasty. As the day draws on, such feelings of celebration will start to wane and Boston will come to realize that the Patriots they know and love were soundly routed by the Miami Dolphins last Sunday, starting a losing streak for the first time in the Tom Brady area. Not being ones to let go of bad news easily, these clouds of doom and despair will hover over Boston for far more than than the 24 hours of Yankee-downfall happiness. Some experts believe that the “How are we supposed to beat Green Bay?” cold front will last right into Sunday. One can only hope that Boston residents will soon brighten their day with the news that WWE RAW is WAR will be returning live to the Fleet Center on Nov. 4.
