I sallied forth into the cold white world with the Olympus OMD. One lens, the 12-50mm telephoto. I left the camera bag and lens cap inside so I wouldn’t have to fiddle with them.

Home in the snow
Up the driveway. We had no idea how much we would hate this driveway when we bought the house.

I can’t shoot with gloves on and in that kind of cold, my hands go numb pretty quickly. Five minutes into shooting, I can no long adjust the lens.

I am not a big fan of snow, which is probably an odd thing for someone who has spent his entire adult life in New England. Not to mention having covered just about every blizzard that occurred in the region for 31 years.

There are a lot more pictures, but since Marilyn does the processing, these are the ones she had time to work on. More photographs to come but hopefully, no more snow!

Just under 28 inches.

As a reporter for Channel 7 in Boston for 31 years, I was witness to most of the major events affecting the region. I met a lot of people ... politicians, actors, moguls, criminals and many regular folks caught up in extraordinary situations. Sometimes, I write about the people I've met and places I've been. Sometimes, I write about life, my family, my dogs and me. Or what might otherwise be called Life.


    1. We live in “the slot” for heavy snow. We typically get A LOT of snow and often. This was one of many. That’s so far about as much as we get in one fall (28 inches), though we’ve gotten two or three like that in a week occasionally. Yeah. A lot.

        1. Truly, dreary. .Skipping monthly lunch with my old farts TV newsies pals. Don’t feel like coping with snow and icy roads. Myriad accidents reported. Yech!

  1. I love the bottom one, it looks edible. We got about 18 inches out of this last one, and while I don’t fear for the roof, I do fear for the drips.

    Martha, watch your delivery trucks; I will be bundling up about half of ours too, so you can sample NH snow as well as Mass. snow. Only fair…

    1. We get a LOT of snow around here. It has something to do with the configuration of the valley and hills and the way the clouds fall over the Worcester hills. We get pounded by snow. Most years. Last year was easy, but this has been more typical.

      1. Just seems like it’s more frequent. Like an annoying neigbor who keeps ringing your door bell and can’t take a hint. “GO AWAY”.


    1. It IS beautiful and when I was younger and more agile, I enjoyed it. But these days, it is hard for me to move on normal ground and so much more difficult in snow. I loved it when I had the teepee. There was nothing more delicious than a night in the tepee with snow falling around me.

      1. We had a dream to live in the country and have a small hobby farm. It never happened. I thank goodness it didn’t because I am beat by the time I get home and couldn’t image having to come home and work until bedtime!
        I guess that old saying: Be careful what you wish applies in this case!

        1. Well, we DON’T have a farm. I thought about getting some mini horses or maybe a few goats, but for once, I realized I didn’t have that much work left in me. Had I been 20 — even 10 — years younger, maybe. But by then, I was in my 60s and I was pretty much done.
