There’s no warmth here

It’s just after six o’clock in the afternoon, and the store just closed. We watched it snow most of the afternoon and made remarks about New England weather centered on how predictably unreliable it is. It’s the first day of Spring for Pete’s sake! The fact is however, if you are going to live here you better just get used to it or go to Florida; and of course that’s what a lot of people do.

Oh well, we got some snow, and it got a little colder for a couple of days. The next few days it’s supposed to be in the 50s. Next week  the motorcycle dealership where I work will be hopping with customers anxious to have their bikes ready to ride.

I can see this wreck of a house from the front of the store. There was a house here only a year ago, but it was in such bad shape it was finally torn down. Now the remains of the chimney and part of the foundation are all that remains; not much warmth there now. I have been keeping my eye on the chimney waiting for conditions like these. I almost didn’t stop today though because I was running late, but I was afraid this would be the last chance to photograph it with snow until late next Fall. You just have to take them when you see them.
