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!

SELL OUT WARNING: Roomful of Blues Cruise this SUNDAY

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!

Ocean Effect Snow

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.

Winter Storm Hits Rockport, Video

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.

One Year Ago Today

This is how we woke up exactly a year ago today.  It makes what you may be seeing outside your window this morning look like an August afternoon.

While it was certainly beautiful…I’m not missing it.

I wonder what the rest of this winter will bring.

Mark Your Calendar- January 18, 2016 Winter Finally Arrived In #GloucesterMA @MattNoyesNECN

I left the house for work this morning much like I would every morning we’ve had this season- dressed like it was still fall. A long sleeve dry fit shirt under a heavy pullover.  Been fine like that right up til when I opened the door this morning to see the first decent amount of snow accumulation.  Took me a bit to clear the truck off and I was covered and cold without gloves in the truck to clear it off.  So the point is,  as of 5:00AM we’ve got 2.75 inches if snow and it’s cold so dress for it and leave yourself a little extra time to clear off the car and drive safely to wherever you need to go.
I hope this doesn’t turn out like last year when we didn’t have it too bad til the middle of January and then it just came coming relentlessly right through April.

For Everyone That’s Bitching About The Heat- A Little February 15th, 2015 Throwback Video For Ya-

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?
