and in honor of the letter "F"

for abc wednesday

Feckin' snow........

We have had a bit of snow....

over 7 feet and the storms just keep coming

today we have wind chills at almost 30 below 0!

Broad Sound, which is the part of the Atlantic Ocean between our little island

and Boston has frozen over as far as we can see. 

Roofs all over the area have been caving in

people have been losing their homes and businesses.

Travel bans have been in affect off and on for the past 3 weeks.

Travel is actually quite dangerous. 

This is school vacation week for the children 

but schools have been cancelled due to weather 

one or two days a week for the past month. 

I've never seen anything like it in all my life

and I lived through the infamous 

"blizzard of '78"

I'm sure the "winter of 2015"

will be talked about for generations.

we took a ride about the island yesterday when the snow finally stopped

and just to give you some sense of scale....

  1. Oh that is very scary. Something so beautiful yet so devastating. Take care. Hug B

  2. the winter you all are having is really unreal-I always think about living rural and the difficulties getting to work-I went through a really really bad year way back when-so I think about that while I am enjoying staying home now-lol stay safe and warm

  3. I hope Mother Nature will finally be finished with snow after this week. This surely will go down in history for Boston and your amount of snow.

  4. I've honestly been thinking about you folks in Massachusetts and can't imagine how you've made it through all this weather. This winter will be one for the record books. We've gotten off easy ... until today. The snow has been coming down steadily for about nine hours and no end in sight for at least 3-4 more. Now, what we're getting is peanuts to you folks in MA but to those of us in KY, a foot, more or less, of snow is a major challenge! My granddaughter will be out of school all week. Truth to tell, I've been waiting for the proverbial shoe to drop here.

  5. Wow - thinking of you. We rarely have snow and always wish for some but really feel for you in your circumstances. Stay inside and keep warm, take care, J9 x

  6. Unbelievable....Truly a year that will set records for snowfall.....Please be careful and stay safe...

  7. oh my goodness.......I have been thinking about you......good grief last year we had the snow and cold winter from hell...if you can believe that...but NOTHING like you are going through.........are you cooking a lot? reading? .how are your supplies?

  8. Wow!So much snow!AriadnefromGreece!

  9. You have too much, we don't have enough on the BC coast. Our mountains are almost bare. I hate to think what the lakes and rivers will be like this coming summer. - Margy

  10. lots of frickin' snow. and cold.

  11. The' freakin' snow indeed!
    How awful that roofs are caving in and people are losing their businesses.
    Surely the local officials can dip into their finances to help people out,
    That's what we all pay our taxes for!
    I wish you all well and that the 'frickin' snow disappears soon !
    There probably will be some snow making it's way across the Atlantic to us, on the west coast of the UK...That's what usually happens when the US has blizzards!

    Best wishes,
    ABCW team.

  12. Wow, that is one incredible amount of snow, travel must be near impossible, besides dangerous too! Brave and strong you are, God bless you all. Spring is coming, so they have been saying, and I'm hoping and praying it is!

  13. And it just keeps coming...I've been watching the weather channel♪ http://lauriekazmierczak.com/fiery-sunset/

  14. wow incredible photos...so sad about people losing their homes and businesses...scary all that snow..

  15. It's unbelievable! All I can say is, I hope it's over soon!

  16. So much snow! I am like WOW!
    The road is cleared thankfully!
    Happy ABCW!
