SOMERVILLE (CBS) – Thursday was April 19, but it felt more like the 109th day of January.

Latest Boston Weather Forecast From WBZ

This has been one New England winter that won’t let go, and one local business has had enough.

Gracie’s Ice Cream in Somerville’s Union Square posted a profane meltdown to Twitter, blasting Mother Nature for another day of snow and cold.

ice cream tweet Ice Cream Shop Has Profane Meltdown Over New England Weather

The tweet from Gracie’s Ice Cream (WBZ)

“HERE IS A PRETTY PICTURE OF ICE CREAM,” part of the tweet read. “COME BUY SOME SO WE CAN ALL PRETEND IT’S A NORMAL SPRING AND NOT SOME SOULCRUSHING TRUDGE TOWARD DISCONTENT AND UNENTHUSIASTIC SURFACE CONVERSATIONS WITH PEOPLE YOU HARDLY KNOW.”

Gracie’s owner Aaron Cohen talked to WBZ-TV about the tweet, this time using more family friendly language.

“We try to have fun with it as much we as can but it’s frustrating,” he said. “This is a time when people start eating ice cream and they haven’t yet because of the weather.”

Sheila Foley, who owns Neighborhood Restaurant, said she read the tweet and it captured exactly how she’s feeling.

“We are too trying to open our outdoor seating,” she said.

It looks like ice cream weather may finally be on the way. Temperatures are set to rise into the upper 60s early next week.

  2. If global warming doesn’t end soon we are all going to freeze to death.

  3. Is he nailed down in that state?
    ….’cause if he isn’t….ya know….MOVE!

  4. It can’t be true, Al Gore said we were in a Global Warming crisis. He wouldn’t lie to us would he? Mmmmmm.

  5. yep global cooling..the warming change IS FRIGGING CYCLIC

    I live in Phoenix,

    Should I start complaining about the heat? It’s like I live in a desert………

  7. It’s global warming. It causes warming in the summer months, and cooling in the winter months, and sometimes cold in the spring and warmth in the fall. There’s a scientific consensus and everything. For $4 trillion globally, a year, we can fix some of this and eat our ice cream earlier.

    Lol you live in Northeast and complain about it?

    Move South. You’ll make more profit down there anyway.

    Well, get used to it New Englanders, if you choose to stay there. This is a COOLING trend and it has been underway since the late 90s when sunspot activity began to reduce to the point where it is now pretty much non-existent. So? SO, it’s called the “Grand Solar Minimum” and it goes in cycles and precedes/contributes to “mini ice ages” that can last 50-100 years and yes, “Al-E-Gore” (and all who bought his garbage), it’s the SUN that controls the earth’s climate, not all of your pompous, arrogant useless leftist sheep!

    Depending on the extent and severity, it can (and IS) lead to increased volcanic activity and eventually, a full blown ice age, which occurs about every 10,000 years and lasts for centuries. We are at the of the latest warming period and entering a new cooling period. A major concern is crop damage, loss and destruction and resulting food shortages, which are beginning to happen. India just lost 80% of it’s corn crop and the mid-western US states (wheat belt) are still covered in deep snow and far below average temperatures…not good.

    I left New England 15 years ago for warmer climes, the cooling/lousy weather being a contributing factor for my decision…sure glad I did. Get up to speed on the GSM on y-tube where there are a lot of informative videos posted by REAL climate scientists, not blithering idiots like Al-E-Gore.

    1. Spot on Tom!!! People need to learn about THE GRAND SOLAR MINIMUM!!!
