A Kentucky native, I moved to Boston over the summer. I am experiencing my first winter in New England. I would say it has successfully exceeded my expectations! Although Kentucky does receive snow pretty often, the amounts are generally tiny compared to what I have seen this winter in Boston. However, nothing could have prepared me for ‘Nemo’, the Nor’easter blizzard that struck the East Coast Friday February 8, 2013. As a photographer, the forecast for this blizzard was very exciting. Over the past two days, I have spent as much time outside as possible.
Today, the 9th, I ventured out into the winter wonderland around noon and returned home 5 hours later. My outing took me from the North End to Faneuil Hall, Boston Common, Boylston St., Leventhal Park, & the Long Wharf. The day truly was an adventure, a wonderful afternoon to see the city and enjoy the atmosphere. During this blizzard experience I have seen a man in shorts riding a bicycle, grown men engaging in snow ball fights, snowmobiles whizzing down Hanover St., a snow man being built in front of the Paul Revere Statue at 1 AM, and people skiing and snowboarding in Boston Common. The only thing I haven’t seen during this storm is a single face without a grin. Each time I have gone outside, I experience the city-wide ‘snow day.’ ‘Nemo’ has helped each of us find our inner child.

I got home just in time for a sunset view from the roof.
