With a wind chill advisory in effect from 10 tonight to 10 a.m. Wednesday, we figured you could help warm your fingers by typing an ending to the beginning of this sentence: "You know it's cold out when..." Readers got us started earlier this month on another cold day. What can you contribute?

This will be the only "storm" of the week, said Reiner, and take place midday into the late afternoon. Wednesday will see the sun return, he said, but not high temperatures.

Local farmers’ markets are the calling card of summer. Outdoor booths and tables boasting locally grown fresh produce and hand-crafted goods await eager residents.

A crackling fire may well be lit in the family room as hot chocolate simmers on the stove. Winter in New England. This weekend, instead of hitting the slopes, lacing up your skates or packing your car full of …
