"Amen."

Here's the prayer again in full:

Almighty God, who made the green grass on the Fenway, the blue waters of Dorchester Bay and the tan sands on the Cape, we have a simple prayer: Enough with the snow already.

Whatever mysterious point you're making about endurance, or patience or your own awesome power, we get it: we've endured, we're plenty patient and we get that you can do the snow thing.

And we know that you know the old joke (since you know everything) about how if the Pilgrims landed in Florida first this part of the country would never have been settled, ha ha, but we love it here.

We love the spring, especially on Boston Common. We love the Fall, especially in the suburbs. And we love the summer, especially on Cape Cod, on Cape Ann and on the South Shore.

We love all those beautiful parts of your world. But we've had it with the snow.

I mean, have you looked out my window? So we'd like to ask you to stop sending us the snow.

And, just to be clear, when we say snow we also mean freezing rain, sleet, black ice, any kind of flurries and that new creation of yours, thundersnow.

We promise we'll be good during Lent, we'll be kind to one another, and won't ask for another thing, at least until the Red Sox start to play. Amen.
