If you’re a blog follower of Rivergirl, my Maine squeeze (metaphysically speaking, of course), you know that she’s had winter trouble right there in River’s city (actually, town) this month….so I thought I’d post a few winter-weary weather songs to help her (and you) go wassailing through the rest of the month.

Hollywood knows There’s No Business Like Show Business (they made a movie of it in 1954), but it seems Old Hollywood also knew there’s no business like snow business:

But New England and Old Hollywood have nothing on this place when it comes to snow and freezing weather (even the song about it was written by comrade Cold Porter, if I’m not mitaken):

Cheers!
