One often hears the expression “Now that’s a perfect photo-op”! To overstate things a bit, Sunday, October 30, 2011 was maybe one of the best "snowstorm photo-ops" since the Civil War, which apparently was the last time an early Nor’easter this big hit New England. Nearly 3 feet of snow in some places! On the day before Halloween!
Unlike almost 3 million people who lost power due to the storm, I was lucky. I did not lose power… only cable & internet. So it was pretty hard to feel sorry for myself when the sun came out on Sunday morning.
I got up early, grabbed my camera and went outside. The first thing I saw, just outside my front door, was a bed of roses…covered in snow. I shook them off a little, took a few pictures and went for a walk.
As I walked to the park, tree limbs were scattered everywhere... pulled down by the weight of the snow on the leaves. In late October we are so used to seeing the leaves blowing across green grass, not stuck in snow and ice.
Even the green leaves got stuck in the snow before their time.
Leaves and limbs are not quite as pretty, however, when they fall in the wrong places.
Tonight is Halloween.
I guess you never know whether nature will bring a "Trick or a Treat" (or both)!
Internet service is back. It was nice being “off-line” for a few days!
This page is where I put stuff that doesn't fit elsewhere.... news, photos, an occassional idea, work in process, etc.
