Is everyone Ready for some snow in South Carolina? How many of you haven't seen snow before? I was just talking to a neighbor and they said they haven't seen weather like this in over five years! It figures, I moved here for the warm weather and the snow follows me! As many of you may know I was born in Massachusetts and spent my whole life there until I moved to Myrtle Beach a few months ago. I was enjoying the warm weather until last week when this freeze started. According to weather channel Charleston already has snow and Myrtle Beach will be next! In light of this developing weather I figured I would share some of my snow memories from New England!
This is one of my favorite winter images that I have taken. I was in college at the time studying at Salem State University in Salem, MA. I went into Boston to visit my sister and to see the Nutcracker with her and my Mom. By the time the show was out there was a few inches of snow on the ground and we had plans to go to Mike's Pastry in the North End and we decided to walk. I quickly took this image by the Oyster House and loved how it came out! This image was chosen to be displayed in the local Salem art exhibit that year.
This image was taken in 2015 during one of the largest snowfalls in the history of the North Shore of MA. I was in my last year of university and this was the parking lot on campus! Most of the cars were completely covered by the snowfall. I remember the snow being up past my hips! My roommate and I used our snowshoes to get around the next few days. I was living in Salem and it was the biggest snowstorm for them since the 70's! That year Boston had a record snowfall with over 108 inches total, it surpassed all previous records from as early as 1872!
This is a photo from the same crazy snow year of 2015! This house was one of my favorites in Salem! I just love the color of this house! It is the perfect New England style house
This photo is one of my favorites because it was pure luck!I had just woken up and found a bunch of deer in the backyard! I wasn't quite yet awake but somehow managed to run around and grab my camera before the deer left! It may not be the most clear image but it is still amazing to me that I was able to see and capture this moment.
This photo was taken last year in Nantucket, MA! I always love visiting Nantucket and winter is no different. Nantucket's beauty never disappoints. I took this photo just as I was heading to the ferry to leave the island. The island had received some ice and snow that morning and the harbor looked stunning! If you ever get the chance to visit Nantucket you should! There is so much beauty and wonderful things to do on the Island.
I hope everyone enjoys the snow if we get it all the way in South Carolina. I am thinking of all my friends in Boston and hope you are all prepared and safe for the 15 inches of snow you may get on Thursday! No matter where you are, I hope everyone stays warm and dry.
