Serene Scene

Today’s snow was as nice as any in mid-March can be.

It was lovely. It was light. The roads were warm enough to melt it instantly. Kids got a day off from school. (Bonus: A 3-day weekend.)

Alert “06880” photographer Andrew Colabella captured this gorgeous Compo Beach scene:

Spring is right around the corner. Daylight Savings starts tomorrow night. (Turn those clocks forward!)

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Temperatures will plunge to the mid-teens tonight. It will be c-c-c-cold all weekend.

Snow arrives Monday night. It may snow all day Tuesday, and linger Wednesday. Winds will blow up to 40 miles and hour.

You know how happy we were with that mild winter?

Damn.

    The snow we had today is named “Spring Snow” by the Japanese because it is as ephemeral as the Cherry Blossoms in April. When you drove along the roads the trees seemed covered in blossoms. See Yukio Mishima’s book “Spring Snow.”

  5. Saturday is the anniversary of the Blizzard of ’88 (1888), one of the worst storms in history. Go to Google for the story.

  7. Fantastic picture! Brings back great memories… (As I sit in my Lazy-Boy watching basketball. It’s 83 degrees outside here in CA. Thank G-d for Air Conditioning!)
