Madison, CT  2018

Regular followers of this blog might have noticed that my posts have been rather sporadic in 2018.  I see that my last post was dated March 19, and since I started blogging, this has been the longest stretch of time between posts.  For a number of reasons, I've decided to take a break from blogging, at  least for the next month.  I think my photos have become a bit stale, and I find myself returning to photograph the same subjects.  Weather has been a factor the last two months, not allowing good opportunities to photograph and I've had some health issues to deal with as well.  So I think a break will do me good.  I would like to thank all my followers for visiting, reading and commenting on my photos.  I do appreciate it, and I will continue to follow all your posts as well, and will comment from time to time.  They serve to inspire me.  I do plan to resume regular posting, but it won't be for awhile.  Thanks!

Nor'easter III - 2018

The third Nor'easter storm in the last week and a half has closed down the entire state of Connecticut.   The eastern part of the state got the most snow from this storm.  Power outages aren't quite as bad as the first two storms to hit here though.  We've been lucky here so far.

There is a car under that snow.

Jonathan Edwards Winery

North Stonington, CT  2018

I could have stayed home on this dreary Sunday and enjoyed a glass of wine, but it's much more fun to go to the source.

Niantic, CT  2018

We had a pretty bad storm here on Friday with high winds, rain, and snow, depending upon where you were in Connecticut.  Along the coast, we had only rain and wind.  These "nor'easter" storms are New England's equivalent of a hurricane, and sometimes can be just as damaging.  We lost power  for a few hours last night, and I awoke to find this tree didn't fare too well with the high winds.  It wasn't big enough to cause any significant damage, but nevertheless, by mid afternoon, it was cut down and chipped.
