A Blast of Winter...

Although the 2017 Winter in Philadelphia hasn't been as nasty as seasons past, Mother Nature hit us with a Nor'easter this week that left the city and surrounding areas with some messy snow and ice.


As I've frequently said, the only way I like my snow is in a photo. Many people were happy to share their "snow photos" from around the city on social media. The white stuff does look lovely (in a photo, of course!).

A "shout-out" and a thank you to all the Philly folks who posted photos and shared.



"The Academy of Natural Sciences"




"Philadelphia Museum of Art"




"Historic Christ Church and Burial Ground"





"Benjamin Franklin Parkway"




"View of Cret Park from
Capricco Cafe and Bar"




"Spruce Street"



According to the calendar, Spring begins tomorrow. Let's hope Mother Nature circled the date! 😊

Everyone, stay warm, safe, and have a great week!

  1. I loved the pictures. Thanks for sharing. We got rain here in southern VA. The temps did get cold. All my white magnolia blossoms turned brown.

    1. I'm sad to hear about your white magnolia blossoms. They're so beautiful and a sure sign of Spring. Thanks, Vonnie, for visiting.

  2. Your pictures are just gorgeous, Angela! I wish we'd had some fun stuff, but not to be this year. Spring is bustin' out all over.

  3. The irony is that I keep living in states who get about 1-2 inches of snow, but I'd like a lot more. I lived in ND while in the Air Force and we had blistering cold AND snow drifts which was challenging at times. I sort of wish it would snow one day, then go away the next. Snow a week later, then go away the next day.(lol) The pics are nice!

  4. Lovely pictures. So glad I'm not dealing with snow. Here in Phoenix we're having an early heatwave. Temperatures have hit 90 several times which is about 15 degrees over our normal temperatures for this time. We will get a cool down next week close to normal but thankfully, no snow.

    1. Although we still have some of the white stuff on the ground, yesterday's afternoon temperature did feel like Spring in Philly. Thanks, Kim, for visiting.

  7. Oh, that is so pretty! Thanks for sharing, Angela! I love it!

    We've been hit with a lot of snow this winter. We had a drift that almost made it to the top of the house. :) Even though almost everything's melted around here, there's still a little snow left from that drift. It was a great winter! Oh, but I'm so excited for spring!!! Yay!!!

    1. Walking through the South Philly streets today, you would never know there had been snow and ice on the ground this time last week. Thanks, Red, for visiting today!
