Venturing out today around 1:00pm, I caught the tail end of the storm. The winds were still blizzarding and great gusts of snow made places like Brace Cove impossible to photograph. The tide was super high at Good Harbor Beach, but not as high as some recent storms. The waves were tremendous, although they weren’t the ginormous rollers of many nor’easters either.
So pretty out there. Hate to say it, I love snow storms.

You know that little black shovel that sits on top of the snow blower so if you iced up the auger, you can you IT instead of your hand? Well…it apparently can fall off the flimsy clip they put on the machine and get caught in the auger. That’ll teach hubs to go skiing during another snowstorm lol! Anyway….it’s all better. Nothing a little sawzall couldn’t fix! Careful today…it’s slippery under that snow!
Poor guy…got his feelings all hurt.
