The Aftermath

“What good is the warmth of summer without the cold of winter to give it sweetness?”

-John Steinbeck 

I took these photos the day after the second nor easter dumped 19.5 inches of the white stuff on us.





It’s Blowing And Snowing!

Call me crazy, but in the middle of our second nor easter in a week, I decided to head outside to take some pictures.  The storm was raging and even though It was dark and I was more than a wee bit cold, I braved the elements to get these pictures!

In the moments when the wind slowed to a dull roar, being outside in the snow was very peaceful. The sound of the snow falling provided me with a sense of peace and some tranquility.




The Nor’easter

Here in the northeast of the US we are about to get slammed by a Nor’easter this Tuesday and Wednesday. Here is a short piece of rhyming poetry to usher it in:

In a couple of days time a nor’easter will blow,

The weatherman is telling  a tale of woe.

The wind will be whipping and a cold snow will be falling,

The cruel hand of Boreas soon will be calling.

And as much as I love the soft fluffy white,

Two feet of snow is more of a blight.

So as I sit and ponder the storm,

The coming of spring  can’t be the norm, 

But the new season will soon be here, that much is true,

A bright crisp green landscape and fresh air anew.

So look out your window and enjoy winters last breath,

As we move hand in hand celebrating its death.
