I arrived in Boston today — which has snow — and was immediately bombarded by television commercials for the local ski resorts, which also have snow.
But Crotched Mountain?
I can’t be the first person to experience a bit of mental whiplash at that name.
Apparently the mountain, located in western Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, was named by early settlers who thought its V-shaped peaks resembled the fork or “crotch” of a tree.
My dirty mind has never heard “crotch” used in quite that context before. But I’ll sure think of it now…
Every time it snows.
