Cambridge in the snow

You may have heard that we’ve gotten some snow this winter. You may have heard that it’s been a little, um, chilly this winter. You’d be right on both counts.

I’ve been taking some pictures. Some of these are views from work, some are on my commute to or from, some should serve as a warning to others, and some are just lovely. Take a look.

This is an interesting looking pine tree as viewed from the 2nd floor of the Cambridge museum where I work.

This is the roundabout of shrubs in front of where I work. Keeping it plowed is a challenge.

MOAR trees.

This view is actually from the bathroom window. Really.

Winter FAIL

This cascade of ice is about 8 or 9 feet tall. This is a very damaged downspout.

This was in the middle of the storm last Thursday. This was a well publicized storm. This is called failure to prepare. It might also be called frostbite.
This is a lesson in How Not to Park in Snow.  The plows were having trouble getting by.  The Police showed up.  Don't be This Guy.

Snow Everywhere

Looking out onto Divinity Ave in Cambridge. These snowflakes were a couple inches across.

I feel sorry for the poor guy shoveling.

Perfect, pristine snow on the railing and porch. Even if you hate snow you have to admit that it’s pretty.
