Taking the Plunge
More than 75 people took part in the John Hancock Birthday Plunge into Quincy Bay last weekend and raised $8000 to help local people in need of food and fuel this winter. Water temps were just above freezing as you can see from the shocked expressions of these hardy souls. The plunge is a tribute to Hancock, who lived in Quincy and was the first signer of the Declaration of Independence. This statue from a previous post honors John Hancock.
Thanks to Clueless in Boston for sharing this image.

A late winter snowstorm named "Stella" is due to bear down on the Northeast Tuesday!
After today's snowfall, the sky took on a watercolor glow of pink, purple and blue. It was a winter wonderland once again.
From atop Penn's Hill, Abigail Adams and her young son John, could have heard the women chanting in Boston today.
