Blizzard! (and not the creamy, delicious kind)

Day 1: 3:30 p.m. – still snowing, wind blowing hard.

Day 2: 3 p.m., this time, we walked to the areas next to Quincy Harbor, where the storm took on the feeling of a nor’easter. Wind blowing from the northeast, huge waves.

Then onto Marina Bay, overlooking the University of Massachusetts, Boston.

    • Thanks, Susan. I’m always surprised at what the ice looks like after a nor’easter. This storm came from the southwest, so it doesn’t really qualify, but the wind was definitely blowing from the northeast! We stayed safe, though not always warm, what with the silly walking around in a blizzard. 🙂

    • I have a friend in Mobile, Alabama, who says the same thing. 🙂 I’m from Eastern Oregon, and we get plenty of snow, but never like this. And never the icy remains of a nor’easter. We didn’t lose power so we’re warm and cozy. We’ll stay as safe as the roads allow on our way to and from work, school and errands.
