Well, Thursday had wind, rain, waves and then the lightning.
The spray from the waves were amazing on Sunday. Becoming obsessed with waves.
First of all, please be careful out there. Took a ride from Magnolia to The Back Shore about 3 to 4 hours of so before high tide. The snow was coming down very hard and there were white out conditions.
Took this at high tide
Finally a little sun shinning through late on Wednesday.
On Wednesday after the ice, the temperatures warmed up and at dusk the sky was so beautiful.
With the cold weather, the sunset show beautiful colors.
Sunday morning was so beautiful for a walk.
Another perfect night for a FREE Movie at I4-C2 – Finding Nemo Tonight – Bring Food Donations for The Open Door
Last week over 700 people (including plenty of “Pink Ladies”) flocked to I4-C2 to enjoy “Grease” under the stars. Tonight will be just as beautiful, if a tad cooler. Perfect viewing weather for “Finding Nemo.” Bring non-perishable food to donate to The Open Door Food Pantry and do some good while having fun with the family!
When I lived for a while in the mountains near Woodstock, NY, people there used to say, “We have three seasons: July, August and Winter.” This spring might make you wonder if the same is true here in Gloucester. It’s not. Nice weather is around the corner and it starts this weekend when we celebrate Memorial Day and call it the beginning of summer (even though astronomically, summer isn’t for another 4 weeks). So … good riddance oh nasty spring — IT’S TIME TO PARTY!
But here’s the thing: even if our capricious New England weather decides not to cooperate, which we all know is possible, you can still party in supreme comfort aboard The Beauport Prince Cruise Ship on Memorial Day Sunday with 5-time Grammy nominees Roomful of Blues! That’s because the Beauport Princess is a Cruise Ship (not a whale watch boat) sporting 2 climate-controlled indoor decks with dance floors PLUS an open-air top deck — and there’s a full bar on every deck. For this cruise, we have theatre seating on the first deck, tables on the 2nd deck and couches on the top deck — because Mother Nature could be nice to us after all! Tickets are only $35 in advance ($45 at the dock if there are any left — this cruise has sold out the last 2 years). It’s the best Memorial Day bargain you’ll find so get tickets right now RIGHT HERE!
The same morning earlier this week that everyone was out photographing gorgeous images of sea smoke, I took this photo. While we didn’t receive new snow fall during the night, the homes and landscape at the end of our street were covered with ocean effect snow early the next morning. It was kind of cool to see.
Music to my ears….even on such a stormy winter day.
We took a drive just after high tide today. We drove by Old Garden Beach, down Atlantic, to T Wharf, down Bearskin Neck, to the breakwater, through town, by Front Beach, to Granite Pier, and then back home. Not much accumulation but it was coming down good, VERY windy, and some great surf! #winterstormmars
Just another February on Cape Ann.
