Documenting the Feb 2013 blizzard

The warnings started in earnest on Thursday that two weather systems (one from the south the other from the west) would be colliding somewhere around Boston and would create blizzard conditions for the northeastern U.S.

Friday – the calm before the storm and an opportunity to take Lucy for a walk down Robbins Road on a light coat of fresh snow.

IMG_1066 IMG_1065The real snow was  to start on Friday night into Saturday morning .. and it did!

IMG_1071 IMG_1069 IMG_1067Lucy was totally confused when none of the doors on the main level could be opened! but luckily there was only about 8″ of snow under the deck (from the basement door) and then someone kindly made a little tunnel for her.

IMG_1076 IMG_1082 IMG_1080A little sustenance was needed after all the snowing and blowing. Aah!  a pot of black bean soup with odds and ends from the refrigerator!

IMG_1077And it continued coming down and blowing around until about 5 p.m.

IMG_1078 IMG_1074Sunday morning brought a gloriously blue sky, a light breeze, and sunshine that created a myriad of crystals on the snow. Out with the shovels ..

IMG_1104 IMG_1105 IMG_1106 IMG_1097And a little grooming ..

IMG_1110 IMG_1108We’re all shoveled out, so off down town to see how it looks there.

  1. Looks like you guys got a lot more than we did. Goes to prove once again that everything is bigger and better in the States! Mind you if Canada didn’t levy an import tax on snowstorms we’d probably have just as much as you. How did the soup taste? That was the most important photo of all.
