Snow Beach

Ugh. Just...ugh. This snow is not what I had in mind.

Hi! I suppose many of you have snow too. I expected snow over the weekend. But No. On Monday evening, this was the view. So soft and serene-looking. Howling gale winds though, a harbinger of things to come.

These are the big and bigger dredging barges!

They're digging out the channel to the east. Lots of shipwrecks lie under that water, and many boats have travelled these waters over the years. So maybe, just maybe, the barges will suck up and spit out some good treasures? Sure, it may take a couple years for the stuff to wash ashore but I am hopeful
So this is what I saw Tuesday when I got up!


And all day, all night...

This was yesterday morning.

Remember, a table is about 34" high!


These not so great photos were taken by me sticking my arm out the deck door. Because that drift is perhaps 7 feet tall and its base is blocking the doorway.

And the windows.

Time to be smart and stay in.

Here's a big batch of hearts ready to go to the post office, Don't they look cute!
By today they were on their way west, no doubt hoping they'd land in a warm and sunny spot.

Stay home if you can? I ventured out in my grippy soled snowboots and second hand ski pole. I made it to the post office and back...but quaking in my Timberlands all the way !



gone to the beach...
