The Blizzard of 2013! Mother Nature at her best! Showing off her beauty and power all at the same time! She is quite the talented Lady! Had to share! In many areas - this exceeds the Blizzard of 78...so near to the 35th anniversary.
Considering different parts of New England, we are quite lucky! We only got ~24 inches of snow so far and fared the winds (so far! not to jinx! ) but it is still snowing and still drifting....
The clean white snow is really so pretty and so tranquil.....it makes for such a peaceful view....right out my front door to neighbors...
One of the best things that happened was the Governor declaring a state of emergency and a driving ban that has not yet been lifted! Only a few cars were stranded on the roads and it allowed Public Works to try to keep up with cleaning during the storm! In another show of might, Mother Nature has stirred up the seas despite the wind blowing out to sea the waves are coming in along the shore line with 15 to 30 foot waves -- Beautiful! and Mightiful.....in some cases breaking the sea walls and coming down streets or invading homes.... 84mph winds down at Hyannis last night....She is quite the Lady!
Still Snowing - Still Drifting - Still digging out -- Still hunkered down -- Still trying to stay warm and dry -- Still trying to stay safe! Thankfully it is a weekend....and maybe a little crafting to pass the time!
So that's what is going on in our neck of the woods....what's happening in your neck of the woods???
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
