The snow clearing crews have done a fantastic job, and have worked practically around the clock. Still, people on Main Street had to get out last Sunday to make their storefronts accessible. They carved narrow pathways along the sidewalk, which were used by people like me who were out for the Chocolate Tour.
I snapped these on Sunday Feb. 10. Amazing piles of snow!
Coming soon: some familiar smiling faces in the midst of the snow!
Sometime Friday night the front doors of our antiques shop, Robert Coviello Antiques, 155 Main Street in Essex, blew in. We were shoveling from the inside out Saturday morning!
Awesome Video from Craig Kimberley.

A few Rockport shops and galleries were open on Sunday and thankfully, there was hot coffee to be had at both Bean & Leaf and Brothers’ Brew. Bearskin Neck was pretty beat up, with chunks of asphalt upended, the buildings covered in ice, and debris scattered all over the place. Residents were hard at work cleaning up and were very gracious to those of us who were wandering on a Sunday stroll while they were trying to make their homes and businesses accessible and safe.

Not the best video but you’ll get the point. my poor dog Blaze ran for the door after she almost got blown off the deck.
