What would you rather be out there shoveling all frickin day? Removing the snow from the bottom of your driveway that you just shoveled out because the overworked plow guy just made another swipe and pushed it all right back in front of the spot you just shoveled?
Don’t make Homie come and kick ya in the nuts. Nobody wants to see that now do they?
What a day for capturing dramatic skies!

The Ipswich Bay view tonight. (click the photo for larger image)
The iPhone camera can’t even recreate the amazing colors that happened!
What a color change in 2 minutes! I bet you’ll see a few shots of this here on GMG.
It’s great to be back on our grand island!
The wind is screaming down here, but it’s sunny and beautiful as you can see.
Get out and have a walk!
Or come take some photos and share them with us!
Be syre to watch the Video below. Three Bucket Loads per Truck, I wonder how long it will take to remove all the snow, before we can park cars in there and then take them to the car wash.
For all of you folks that have never witnessed THE MOVIE for 2013, please take the time to do so. You will be entertained.

Was at Good Harbor Beach this morning watching truck after truck coming in to dump snow. They were running out of room and had to call in a front end loader and an excavator. Don’t know how he got on top of that pile but he did. Running the excavator is Charlie Nugent, a local lobsterman. Bill Nugent was in the front end loader, pushing the snow to Charlie so he good push it to the back of the pile. It was interesting to watch all that was going on. Feel free to share these pics.
Ruby’s like “Is this some kind of joke?”
Frosty Paws, not the treat but the feet!
Remember to clean their paws, underneath between their pads a little snowball will form, and it’s freezy fo sheezy!
Good Harbor Beach Surfers
I headed out to capture some footage during the epic 40 degree heat wave on Sunday. I came across some guys who where also a little restless to get back to the great outdoors. I never met them, so I don’t have their names. I shot some pretty cool video, but I thought I would share some snap shots first. Now you have to have a very solid set of stones to paddle out in these waters this time of year. New England has some pretty decent waves in the off season, so it’s not really ever “off-season” for the surfers. If you know these kats, tell them to hit me up!

Hi again Joey,
I’ve attached another photo taken in Lanesville. Lanes Cove is frozen solid and Ipswich bay has an icy covering. You can see just a bit of unfrozen water on the top right.
Thanks for using my last photos.
Booker T’s new 2 CD/DVD set
Tomorrow (Sat 2/21) we welcome Memphis Soul legend and Stax recording artist, Booker T. Jones and his hot young band to the Larcom Theatre for his only New England stop on this U.S. tour. Even though they’ve toured the world, I’ll bet they haven’t seen this much snow on the ground very often — and probably never in the Boston area.
We’re also offering a very limited number of VIP packages that include an intimate meet & greet with Booker T. before the show (just a few people) along with some wicked good gifts, including:
Get the VIP package (more details here) and be sure to tell Booker T. how much you appreciate his trek up here during our worst winter in a very long time and prove to him that nothing can keep us from enjoying great music! Opening the show are local favorites Sarah Seminski and Eric Reardon.
Check out this video of Booker T. with Gary Clark, Jr (one of the guests on his new CD):
And here’s Sarah Seminski & Eric Reardon performing “Try A Little Tenderness” at the Larcom back in November (a song Booker T. recorded with Otis Redding when they were at Stax Records together). Get tickets here.
Main Street, Rockport, circa 1898. Poole’s Drug Store is on the left, and Rockport’s first school house, circa 1790, is on the right. The team of horses in the background is most likely a wooden wedge-plow or a weighted wooden platform to compress the snow.
Hi Joey…attached pic of frozen harbor in case you want to post…
Best, Kathy Chapman
As the blizzard started, we walked over to the Emerson Inn for a special dinner (it’s always special there). I had the pan seared scallops with lentils and wine sauce. It was delicious, but because of what chemo has done to my taste buds, I ate sparingly. The leftovers will make great omelettes at home. It was nice to dress up. The place is not as formal as my outfit indicates.
Janet, my Valentine: She had the Rack of Lamb, rubbed with brown sugar and dijon mustard, served with a Port Wine reduction. She cleaned the plate with a simile on her face. Leftovers: 4 bare lamb bones.
