Boston’s Winter Wonderland

Whew, that was a lot of snow.

Here are before and after shots of our car. This photo was taken around 4pm on Friday afternoon.

Before

This one around 10am Saturday morning. You can just see the top case of my scooter peeking out from behind the car.

After

As you can see, the storm was intense. Lots of wind and about 2 feet of snow in our neighborhood. We spent the evening inside watching Dexter and drinking wine as predicted. We did go out for a few minutes to let Eli run around in the blizzard, which was quickly followed by more sitting by the fire under a blanket.

Saturday we woke up and took an early morning walk.

Mass Ave Boston

This is Mass Ave, probably one of the busiest streets in the city, completely deserted except for us walkers.

Newbury Street

Here is Newbury, another busy street, without a single car.

Newbury Starbucks

Everything was shut down! No Starbucks for us. 😦

So the rest of Saturday was spent doing this.

Scrabble

Yep, a lot of U’s.

There was also lots of lounging.

Guy

The sun came out with a vengeance yesterday. Blue skies and warm temps. In the afternoon we set out for a much more enjoyable stroll around the city. Look at that sky!

Sledding

There were tons of families sledding in the Commons.

Playing in the snow

Eli was loving the snow, he’s waiting to chase a snowball here.

snow sculptures

This is some random guy building what looked to be cross between a lobster and a shark out of snow (in short sleeves!)

I have to hand it to New Englanders, they know how to make the best of the weather. There were people out running despite the snow filled sidewalks, plenty of cross-country skiers along the river and a huge group of kids making a gigantic fort in the park. Blizzards definitely make you appreciate the sunny days. Too bad it didn’t last, back to gray, cloudy and rainy today but there is a silver lining, a gluten-free blueberry muffin trial that worked!

Happy Monday.

Enjoy and Exhale!
