Polar Vortex or normal New England Winter?

I walked out to Eastern Point today and it felt downright balmy compared to yesterday’s biting wind and frigid windchill factor.  Today felt more like global warming than a polar vortex.  The iced rocks and frozen froth just looks like normal winter to me.

About E.J.

Artist, researcher, writer, spiritual traveler of this fascinating orb we inhabit, lover of life and all it has to offer. Hi everyone out there in GMG land. My name is Ellen “E.J.” Lefavour (a/k/a “Ejay Khan” – the pseudonym I used during my years as a political activist artist). I moved to Cape Ann in September of 2010, and was thrilled to be invited by Joey to become a daily contributor to Good Morning Gloucester in December of that year. I am a painter, photographer and writer who has lived and worked as an artist for 20 years, since leaving the corporate world in 1990 to pursue my passion. My contributions to GMG will consist of images (either my paintings, photographs, montages or the occasional video) and a little history about the image, called “Did you Know?” I hope to come up with tidbits of information that people don’t already know, or had forgotten they knew. As I am new here, everything is new and fascinating to me, especially the amazing history, so bear with me if I post something that is common knowledge – I’ll eventually come up with something that’s new to you. As an artist, I will also write about the incredible art scene on Cape Ann. Please take a minute to comment on my posts, like them or not, especially if you have corrections or something to add, as that is how I, and all of us, learn. Have a Good Morning Gloucester, and a blessed day.

  1. Your Brave EJ… It was a beautiful sunny winter day but way to cold for me. I took a short walk around the block to look for some red berries, and the cold crisp air made it difficulty to clip red berry branches this moring. I know I was only outside for a short period of time and couldnt wait to get back my the house to cozy up by the fireplace for to defrost… I am so ready for spring!

      Believe me Felicia, if you had gone out yesterday when it was so bitterly cold and windy, today would have seemed balmy in comparison. I also go out properly dressed for the conditions with multiple layers, fleece lined tights and extra socks, two pairs of slacks and a long down coat with a hood, hat and gloves. Once I get out there I want to be able to stay out for at least an hour to get some exercise and photos without freezing. There is something about extreme cold that I find invigorating and adventurous for a few days – and then I am ready for spring too.

  2. Those are wonderful photos. Loved the closeup one especially.
