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.




Wow…It’s cold outside!


The last few days here in Mahopac, NY have been brutally cold. Daily highs have been in the teens with lows close to zero. To add insult to injury, tonight it looks like the temperature is going to drop to below zero!! The picture in this post was the first thing I saw when I decided to venture outside today. Needless to say, I was met with a biting cold that literally stole my breath. So I took a picture and I hope that it conveys just how cold it is here!

Let me know if the picture reflects the bitter cold that I experienced.
