blazing bonfire

A welcoming warmth during the cold winter.

frozen Buttermilk Bay

The tide retreating from the beach.  The ice is like a ghostly remnant of time.  The past, present and inevitable future.

Electric Avenue Beach.  A few blocks from home.

A good reminder that the water is shallow at low tide.  Diving could be quite dangerous.

New England snow globe

Wind and snow, and then more snow and wind.  Not that it matters too much more than a hill of Boston baked beans, but this wickedly wild winter weather does in fact extend beyond the Boston city limits.  Cape Cod is only about fifty miles away.  I love this extreme winter weather!

food, warmth and shelter

With the ongoing heavy snow in New England, I worry about the wildlife.  How do they survive in the deep snow?  If only they could all have little greenhouses for fresh food.  I wish them health, warmth  and safety during the winter.
