This morning’s snow and ice lingered all day, shrouding the city in such a hauntingly beautiful manner that I couldn’t help but take the late afternoon off and went looking and taking as many photos as possible before the sun set.
Saint Anthony’s Chapel, early this morning when it was still snowing. I am hoping to post a second batch of photos from later today, of the hauntingly beautiful scenes of snow- and ice-shrouded Gloucester however the branches and phone lines are laden and our lights keep flickering on and off. I hope we don’t lose power tonight but won’t be surprised if we do.

Special Guest: TONY FRONTIERO!
Guitarist/singer/songwriter Tony Frontiero has led and played
in many local cover and original bands through the 80s and
90s (Easy Street, Grapevine Road). In recent years, however,
we find him focusing on his songwriting and solo career. No
stranger to the Rhumb Line, Tony had a regular Sunday night
solo spot here back in the 90’s. His songs have a pop sensibility
with a touch of blues, R&B, folk and jazz. ~ Fly
Dinner with great music!

WISHING ALL OUR READERS A
Decadent and Delicious Valentine’s Day!
Look what our wonderful neighbors made! Lotus reports that they created the igloo in assembly line fashion from snow packed rectangular-shaped containers. Mandy shares that it was so much fun to make and they will be perfecting their technique for future igloos. I can’t wait to see what they come up with after this next doozy of a blizzard!
