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.




You Gotta Love Snow Days!


As a teacher, one of the things I know that I look forward to every year are snow days. This particular storm brought us two days off based on the snow on Thursday and then on Friday as the brutally cold temperatures came in as the storm exited.

This was the scene last Thursday morning a couple of hours after the snow started flying. Not only did we get over seven inches of the white stuff, the wind was whipping, making the “real feel” really cold.


The Coming Storm

The coming storm,

Wings beating a hasty

Retreat, winters wrath the next stop?

A pledge made, subliminal path

Helping the flock to flee

Avoiding strife
