The “Calm” Before the Storm

While the snow came later than expected, a full-blown winter storm was definitely in the air. We took a little tour of Rockport from Old Garden Beach, to Bearskin Neck, to Long Beach, and down Eden Road just before the storm blew in.  As we were driving home, the snow began to come down fast and furious.


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.
