SNOW AND THE MEMORY OF SUMMER AND THE NEXT MORNING

Winter morning

Winter morning

It was a huge storm and it buried the mid-Atlantic states. It didn’t miss us completely, but the brunt of the storm — the worst of it — passed us by.

Just as the light was going away, I snapped a few pictures. I never did quite get around to throwing away the dead potted chrysanthemums, so their dried memories of summer are being covered by fresh snow.

Sad? Maybe. But it’s also another reminder that after the snow, there will be spring and summer.

And in the morning, a white cover of maybe 4-1/2 inches of fluffy snow … and a brilliant blue sky and bright sun.

  1. Looking at the picture of the woods there, you really don’t have that much snow. February 2nd is coming up soon. Let’s hope it’s a dreary day and the ground hog doesn’t see its shadow.

  6. New York City had a real Tempest. It was a pure icy frozen hell going to and from work yesterday. Lucky for me my job closed at 2:30 mostly because the MTA shut down and all non-emergency vehicles were ordered off the roads. I had to walk to the nearest subway station in 3 and 4 feet snow drifts. Between the shoveling and walking through mounds of snow to get home I should qualify for some type of winter Olympics!! LOL!! This winter weather is only fit for a Yeti, Sasquatch or Abominable Snow Woman/man! Here are some photos of Central Park (near my workplace) and Brooklyn where I live.

  7. You were lucky according to what our news was bringing about the blizzards that hit the States. We have now had a week of Winter with snow, but since yesterday temeperatures increased and it has almost disappeared. It has been a very mild Winter here.

  9. Weirdly it suddenly got really warm here – the temperature shot up to 12 degrees yesterday, more like Autumn weather! I’m glad the worst of the storm missed you.
