Over the weekend we ran into neighbors who were visiting to get away from snowy northern Massachusetts. "56 inches!" she said they had in their yard. The Cape hasn't gotten that much snow. Yet.
It did snow all day long on Tuesday, and again on Wednesday. By Thursday morning, the sun was back out although the temperature still hovered around ten degrees. The weatherman promises that it will warm up this weekend. We'll see.
Despite the freezing wind, we walked down to the beach on Thursday with our stir-crazy dogs and let them run on the sand. The tides continue to be high, so there wasn't much actual snow on the beach, having been washed away by the recent tide. There was a thick layer of ice along all the rocks and atop the jetties, but no icebergs in the ocean, and no slush washing ashore.
As I write this, there is still a layer of snow on the ground but if it gets as warm as predicted it may be a memory by Monday.
