Some places south of Quincy are enjoying cherry blossoms while we are enjoying snow blossoms once again!

Winter or Spring?

March has proven to be a fickle month so far.  This pre-school play area illustrates it well.

Now You See It

. . . and soon you won't!  The 47-year-old Quincy Center T garage is set for demolition soon.  It is the oldest parking structure in the system and was closed in 2012, due to structural issues.  I have taken many photos from this garage before it was closed.  The trains will continue to run during demo - that should be quite the engineering challenge.  What about saving the spiral section and repurposing it  into an art venue and naming it Guggenheim North?

Frosted Trees

The Norway maples in my yard were lathered with snow this morning.  The coating of white snow is a great contrast that brings out the wonderful texture and green color of the tree bark.  Spring arrives next week!

Looking Up!

Most of Quincy has power back after the recent storm, but many families have lost everything due to the coastal flooding.  Hydro Quebec is looking to head home but may stay around to see what happens with the nor'easter that is blowing in later today.

We are grateful for our good neighbors from Hydro Quebec, Canada, who helped restore electricity to many in Quincy.  They arrived 5 days ago and will stay until the work is done. This was a storm of mega proportions and especially destructive along Quincy's 26 miles of coastline.  The wind took out many older trees and power lines as was the case here.
Nice view of the Boston skyline from atop the bucket!  

Spring Is Blooming!
