… and on the 16th day of April, 2021, it is 34 degrees and snowing.
TV weatherman says more snow on the horizon. Its winter, so it comes with the territory.
“In the bleak midwinter Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone; Snow had fallen, Snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, Long ago.” ~ Christina Rossetti, Poet 1830-1894
Sunday, we got quite a bit of snow. Tuesday, more snow is on the way. Possible 3-5 inches is on tap. Hopefully, I’ll get a walk or two in, as I do like walking in it, as long as it is not windy and blowing in my face. That makes it a miserable time… wellContinue reading “More Snow”
Took a walk in earlier in the day. It was quite a slog navigating the snow covered sidewalks, hoping I wouldn’t come across any unexpected ice. Lady luck was with me, as I didn’t have any problems. The walking did wear me out a bit, as when I got back home, I was dragging myContinue reading “That Was Real”
Late Sunday morning. Snowflakes descending gracefully.
Snow, wind, ice. A perfect trifecta.
Got more snow than what we were supposed to get.
Walking on crunchy snow. Beautiful feeling.
May 9th, it is snowing, windy and 34 F degrees, with a windchill of 29 F. Yikes!
Took a walk in the heavy, wet snow. Of course I got kind of wet, I mean really wet, and I seen two other people outside, doing the same thing. It was enjoyable walk, and it helps keep the sugar in check, and also helps with keeping the mind focused. In these dire times, IContinue reading “Spring Time Snow”

She knew the weather is bad, but she was determined to venture out to the bodega, to get milk, as she had none left. Bundled up, she encountered white out conditions, and soon enough, she got disoriented, and didn’t know where she was. The next morning her son woke up, and his mother was notContinue reading “Short Story”
Winter is the king of showmen, Turning tree stumps into snowmen And houses into birthday cakes And spreading sugar over lakes. Smooth and clean and frosty white, The world looks good enough to bite. That’s the season to be young, Catching snowflakes on your tongue. Snow is snowy when it’s snowing, I’m sorry it’s slushyContinue reading “Winter Quote ~ Ogden Nash”
No traffic for a mid-Saturday morning.
The snow shall fall from the sky, and whiten the surrounding area.
A dusting of snow, along with a new fence.
A bit warmer than yesterday, and tomorrow a lot warmer.
Shortly after 1:00 pm, a snow squall came through, and lasted about 20 minutes. The colder weather will be moving in, along with the wind chill factor.
Weather people now say that snow storm won’t be as bad as they thought it would. Now they say maybe an inch or two of the white stuff on my part of the commonwealth.
Last year nearing the end of February, we had 100 plus inches of snow. In some places there were snow piles higher than a two story building. At this very moment, there is no snow to be found. An El Nino weather pattern will do that in the northeastern part of the US. Maybe nextContinue reading “Snow No Snow”

The calendar says it is April 8 Well, it’s 36 degrees and it’s snowing. Come Friday the expected high is supposed to be 65. Just more wacky/weird New England weather to deal with.
We all could use a little humor, especially with all the snow that was dumped on us.
March 20 is to be the first day of Spring, but here in the Boston area, and doesn’t have the feel of a new season set to begin, as it has and still is windy as all hell, with wind chill factors at times in the teens. Also, there is snow to arrive on Friday,Continue reading “Dirty Snow”
For the past couple of nights, I have seen ads of all things: lawn care. It seems odd to show green grass, flowers, etc., when there is so much damn snow on the ground, and it looks like it will be here for quite awhile. By the way, we’re expecting another inch to three inchesContinue reading “It Doesn’t Make Any Sense”
I read on boston.com the snow that is still on the ground with the exception of the real tall mounds of it, should be melted and gone between March 25 and April 3. Then dear Agnes, it will all be just a memory.
With all the snow in the past three weeks, which was a good amount, there is one way and the best way of looking at it, Laugh! No sense in getting all bent out of shape, as it won’t do you any good. Besides, its Winter! Enjoy it, maybe next Winter will be one ofContinue reading “Just A Thought”

In the current 30 day period, the Boston area has so far, more than 61.6 inches of snow, which beats the previous record 58.5 inches back in 1978. And the snow is still coming down. More in The Boston Globe.
Snow storms are numerous flakes falling from the clouds.
The streets and parking lots are just about deserted. The snow is supposed to be done with late tonight, or early tomorrow morning. There’s talk about another storm for Thursday.

Was today’s snow storm just a dream or a dreaded nightmare?
January can be: cold, frigid, blustery, snowy. January can be: sunny, windy, blustery, calm. January can be: time to bundle up, dress in layers. January can be: a cruel month, with short days and longer nights. January can be: some of the above, or all of the above. A Pondering Mind

Here in Eastern Mass., the first snow storm of the season is upon us. How much we get, is probably anyone’s guess. The photo was taken a couple of hours after the change over from rain.

Snow is white. When it melts, it’s colorless drops of water. —— A Pondering Mind 9/20/2014
The side walk is covered with a layer of snow. This was taken this morning (2/19/14). We got more snow in the afternoon, before it changed to a light mist of rain.
While I was standing outside, during the middle of the afternoon, I took my phone out and was going to a photo of the snow covering the yews. When I looked to see how that pic came out, I saw this photo of the tire track and the curb to the left of it. TheContinue reading “Tire Track”
It seems that mother nature has a problem. The problem is, she must have a very itchy scalp. With all the dandruff falling from the sky above, it looks like she needs a good shampooing, with a good rinsing. Then a apply some conditioning, then rinse and repeat. Now, all this dandruff is landing onContinue reading “Mother Nature”
Late morning shot of the shadow created by the lamp post.
Its been snowing here for the good part of the morning, and you can see the building’s maintenance man, snow blowing the sidewalk. He will be at this throughout the day, as the storm will not be over till sometime later this afternoon.
From my email inbox:I’m sure there are few people out there, that feel this way about winter…
From my email inbox:
Got about two inches of heavy, wet snow. It was in the mid 30s F, so that isn’t to bad. The colder weather will be here, come Tuesday. Click on image to enlarge it.Source of quote
Before entering the supermarket, I took a couple of photos. The first one, is a photo of a cemetery in New Hampshire, which is right near the Mass border on the left side of the photo.The photo below is left of the one above.
Got about an inch or two of snow today, more or less of a nuisance. Warmer weather is to be here for the weekend, and Monday.
This one is in black & white.
This is a photo I snapped this past Thursday, but I was too damn lazy to post it. This was taken shortly after sunset, which is 4:13 pm. With that said, there lies the reason of the lights turning on so early.
On my daily walk this morning, I decided to cut through the local park, as the walking was kind of on the treacherous side. Lots of icy spots. I only took this one photo, and it does have a Zen look to it.
Two photos of rooftops and grounds covered with a coating of snow. Not much of an accumulation, as it went from snow, to sleet, back to snow, then a light mist.
This global warming has brought changes in climate, including making perennial snow mountains melt, thereby adversely affecting not only human beings but also other living species. -Dalai Lama
A majestic photo. Seen on: Daily picdump / unknown photographer
It started snowing here in northeastern Mass a few hours ago. The streets are already covered.
Took these mid-morning, and the snow does look nice, but the wind is making it feel like 16F.
A photo I took while I was standing outside, getting some air. I took three of them, but this one I preferred, as the other two came out a bit blurry. May post them later or tomorrow, and yous can decide about the clarity of them.
Does he not know what season it is, or is he a couple of dinner rolls short of a banquet.

Early morning snow and sleet.

Today, December 21, begins the first official day of winter. It is also the shortest day of the year, day light wise. As the days start getting longer again, we will have one extra second of day light beginning Wednesday, and as the days go by, gradually the sun will be rising earlier, and settingContinue reading “Winter Solstice”
