New England Winter at its Awkwardest!
If you’ve been following the news at all, you probably know that this winter has been a bit… well… mild in New England. In fact this year’s New England winter had been downright non-existent, with early autumn temperatures visiting us as late as the last week of December. In fact, when we arrived in New Hampshire for our annual winter visit, the weather was so warm that we were out building a stick fort with the kids in shorts an t-shirts. Though fun, it wasn’t exactly what we were hoping for. But, on the bright side, the unseasonably warm New England winter did have some advantages – for example, not suffering from frostbite on a pre-dawn Nubble Light shoot (above). Plus, it has been years and years since I’d built a stick fort, so that was a nice walk down memory lane to share with the kids.
However, at long last, the jet stream dipped and a cold front came through, bringing that long-awaited first snow just before the New Year. In Greenland, NH, about 5 miles from the ocean, we got about 6 inches of sometimes fluffy, sometimes wet snow. Just enough for constructing our annual snow fort with the kids. On our final day in New England, as we were packing for the long drive south, the sun had finally come out and with it, a beautiful sunburst shining through the dripping, misty trees. The photo above is from just outside our door, with the Winnicut River slowly flowing along its banks as the night’s ice slowly melted. Of course, this New England winter is far from over, but if December was any indication of what is to come, perhaps this New England winter will be a bit more tolerable than the unceasing snows of the previous winter season.
