Snowing heavily here now. Probably at least two inches so far and it will go on for a few more hours.

It's about time you got lucky, Lucy!

Warm and sunny here, too. We were about 15-20° above normal today. This summer is going to be bad, I'm afraid.

It was 84 yesterday (broke the record) and today overcast and around 73 (haven't checked the radio yet) chance of rain for this weekend, and probably rain for Monday. I sure hope we get the rain.

Arlene - Love how the seasons make the same spot look so very different. From the summer pic I would never have guessed there was all that open space beyond the tree.

Snow just ended within the last 10 minutes and now the sun is trying to stay out. Stay cheerful, Lucy. Considering all the practice with snow removal in Boston, your roads should be clear soon so you can make it to the iris meeting tomorrow.

Thanks, Leslie. It's fun taking those photos but the snow was deep so I only went back there in late January. The little girl statue was up to her neck in snow.

I got about 2 1/2 inches or so, none on the roads. It makes the trees look amazing. Very beautiful indeed.

Yes, it is a beautiful snowfall and the trees do look exceptionally lovely but I'm content with photos until next winter and I hope it arrives late and leaves early. Enough already!!!
