Even though it’s Sunday, I feel like today is a real snow day here in Woods Hole. I mean who can pay bills or even watch football (OK, maybe by late in the day football is OK) when it looks like this outside?
My photo essay on the January 21, 2012 snow storm:
Dusk last night as I walked to the Captain Kidd for a lovely private party.
I appreciate that the Captain Kidd stays open in the winter, even if it’s only on the weekends…
A lone snowplow clears the MBL lot as dusk falls over Woods Hole the evening of the storm.
The next morning, the light was a bit flat but I found some interesting stuff anyway.
I love the moment when the sky opens up just a tad and lets that amazing reflection through…
…and the colorful buoys at the front of the Landfall Restaurant, closed now for the season, come alive in the snow.
A research vessel gleams on the ink black sea.
The Eel Pond glistens, so quiet in the early morning air that you can hear the shush of the beach from here.
Ribbons and greenery, announcing our village’s name at the top of Water Street.
The venerable Woods Hole Inn, looking stately and a bit half-dressed while under-construction in the snow.
The Spenser Baird house on the corner of Gardiner Road, hydrangeas dormant and lights off.
A rustic cottage closed up and lonely looking out over Buzzards Bay …
and the house with sporty turquoise trim nestled in by the Eel Pond .
