Well we survived Nemo this weekend… all 28+ inches of it. Aside from a driving ban for a day and a half, and some sore muscles from shoveling, it was a great snow storm. Huddling by the fire watching movies. Wondering if the power would go out as the snow kept piling up. I loved every minute of it. And watching my kids sled and make snow forts reminded me of the blizzard of ’78 when I was their age. I loved every minute of it then too.
Once the driving ban was lifted, I made a few quick trips around to see what some of my favorite locations looked like buried in snow. Unfortunately it was difficult stopping anywhere as the roads were more narrow than usual, and many parking areas were not cleared. I did grab a few shots, however, including this one of the salt marsh in Essex, MA. It’s strange to see it frozen, when it’s typically flowing with water among green grass like in this image. I guess it’s a different kind of beautiful in the winter.
