Spring blizzard

‘Blizzard’ is not a word in my experiential vocabulary!  Being a California girl, the prospect was exciting.  Arriving on Martha’s Vineyard in the evening with a storm predicted the next day, the locals were downplaying the possibility – selfishly I was hoping….  Waking during that night to howling wind, I was not disappointed!

Morning provided this scene

Snow blown against the house by gale-force winds.

 The storm abated, night descended, color returned.

  1. Blizzard, is a word living in New York that I have had to use too many times. This has been a long winter and I am looking forward to summer. However that being said your photographs are beautiful.
