A LOOOOONG Winter…

I’ve been lazy about my blog posts lately. Well, not lazy, but more uninspired about what to post. It’s been a long winter…full of snow and blizzards and below zero wind chills. There’s not a lot you can explore when 8.5 feet of snow greets you outside of your door every time you venture out. We’re now only two inches from the ALL time record of snowfall in Boston in a winter…a record that hasn’t been beaten since they started keeping track in the late 1800s. That’s pretty crazy. And it was all so fun for the first two weeks…maybe even the first month. But now? I’m over it.

So here are some pics from the past THREE MONTHS of snowstorms. I hope you enjoy living vicariously through my every day craziness.

A dog’s life in snow…

I live in Beacon Hill. This is SO true…cabs couldn’t even drive down the narrow streets without sliding.

Oh look! A squirrel in the Boston Public Garden…they didn’t get buried!

A Boston Common snowman welcomed me as I walked through the park on a snowy day.

Central burying ground was silent and poignant in the white blanket that covered tombstones from the 1700s. This is a block from where I work. What an amazing life I’m blessed to live…

And here are progressive snow pics of the Boston Public Garden throughout the blizzards. Wendell Phillips looks pretty cold…

On my street, even the parking meters were close to being covered…good thing that the city cleared them so they could collect the parking fees for parking! Haha…I’m just glad I don’t have a car anymore to worry about in this weather. Good decision on my part to move and get rid of my car. Public transport has been its own major issue…but at least I’m not having to drive in this!

What it looked like from my balcony in the blizzard. It was pretty CRAY ZEE! How are those people out and walking around?!?

I leave you with a recent picture of “mama duck” and her ducklings. Make way for them…they may be swimming in snow, but spring is coming soon, and I can’t wait for the outdoor activities! Yes, they are still struggling through the snow, but it’s melted quite a bit and I’m enjoying the 40s. It actually seems warm to me! Crazy, right?!
