Snowstorm Flash Back: “Snow” by JJ72

Before I was a California girl, I was a Bostonian. With the news of Winter Storm Nemo ready to pound the American northeast with ungodly amounts of snow, I’m torn. I laugh from my sunny yet still chilly northern California home at the poor people back east preparing for multiple feet of snow then feel somewhat wistful. Aww, I kind of miss snow storms!

My go-to jam when snow was predicted was always this 2001 single from the Irish post-Britpop outfit JJ72. “Why won’t it snow? Like they said it would?”

Stay safe in the snow, everybody! And break out that old JJ72 record — it was really quite good!
