The Blizzard of 2015

Despite news predictions that this was going to be the record-breaking blizzard of all time, with 30 inches of snow, and 60 mph winds, the blizzard was actually a mildly severe winter storm in the New York City area. All transportation was shut down, offices were closed, and everyone was advised to stay home and not go out. Of course some areas were hit severely—Long Island, Nantucket, Boston, New Hampshire, for example—but here at the farm, as you will see in the photographs I took today, it was not so serious.

We did drive around, we had time to cross-country ski a bit with friends, and we enjoyed observing nature in winter. The wind is still howling tonight as I post this blog, and the drifts are still drifting, but so far nothing has been damaged, and every living creature seems okay.

Hope you all weathered the storm as well as we did. Enjoy another “black and white” blog, which really is in color as is obvious from a few of the photos, most notable the one of the cardinal.
