A Boatload of Snow

I hope you are not sick of hearing about the crazy amounts of snow we got in the North East last weekend. You’re not? Oh good, because here are some scenes from how we spent our weekend.

It was hard to measure exactly how much poured down on us because of all the wind and snow drifts. As you can see, we sure got an amazing amount. We measured 27 inches at the lowest point of snow.

We are from New Hampshire, we are use to the snow. We know how to take care of it and move it. But I have to say, this was a two day project.

The poor hubby and neighbor were outside for a 6 hour day the first day, then another 4 hour day the next. It was just incredible.

There is always a sliver lining in all the hard work of winter storms though, once the clearing clouds always give way to the most amazing sunsets. The neighborhood glows pink, then orange as the sky is set ablaze with amazing colors.

It’s always hard to capture the true beauty of the sky with my camera. This gives you an idea of how beautiful it was. We can officially say, we made it through the storm. It was the 5th largest storm in Boston history. I am not sure where it ranks in New Hampshire, but I can’t imagine there have been many more like it.

How did you weather the storm?

    That is crazy! I live on the west coast of Canada and so I know little of snow, even though I spent a few years as a youngster in Ottawa. We are lucky if we get enough snow in winter to last to the next day before it becomes a slushy grey mess that melts quickly. So for now I will just live vicariously through your gorgeous photos.
