Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

Venturing out during the Blizzard of 2015 - this is before the snow started really falling

So, everyone has been asking us “Why are you spending the winter in New England?” Snow, of course! And did we get some snow! The Blizzard of 2015 dropped record amounts of snow and blasted us with near-hurricane-force winds in some areas, principally Cape Cod and the islands (Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket). We fared nicely, tucked in our warm little house in Dennis Port. Chris did succumb to a bit of cabin fever during the storm, but was quite the trooper afterward, shoveling out not only our path and car (three times, actually, trying to keep ahead of the accumulation – no luck there), but also the car of a neighbor a block or so away. Hopefully, someone will come by and plow the lane so we can actually get the car out. A contractor came through during the storm, but we haven’t seen him since. At least we’ve got a beautiful winter wonderland!

Post-blizzard, pre-final shoveling (the car was cleared off last night)
Perhaps this path, shoveled for the third time now, will stay clear
There's actually a deck, table, and chairs under there
A snowy sun!

The house across the street is nearly buried in drifts

  1. Ooooo, way too cold for me. We got snow here in ABQ yesterday, but it's gone already. That's how I like it. Stay warm.
