Nor’easter Athena

vinca snow nor'easterNor'easter butterfly bush snowLike a Greek tragedy, Nor’easter Athena swept through the region this week, dumping heavy, wet snow on towns that were still getting back on their feet after Hurricane Sandy. In my own little garden, the snow bent and broke the boughs of the butterfly bushes (above, left) and flattened the vincas (above, right). But we were lucky. There were people who had just gotten their power back and promptly lost it when trees fell on power lines–and those who were still in the dark and cold, without a glimmer of electricity, when the snow began falling. Now, four days later, it’s in the 50s. Go figure.nor'easter snow nor'easter snow
