Ridiculous Tons of Compacted SNOW!: Blizzard of 2015 Mid Feb in New England

Ridiculous Tons of Compacted SNOW & Blizzards!

I have already blogged some of these photos on another blog of mine, so if you've already seen or read it, I'm sorry...

These were shot on February 12th, 2015
South Weymouth (Mass) USA
South Shore Greater Boston
New England

By mid February this snow had become so friggin' ridiculous that I often was uninterested in even looking out the window... and my bedroom window more than half way snowed-in with piles and piles of snow. If you think these photos look crazy, there was more that followed this, and I just didn't even bother to photograph it. Not only that but it was so cold, that it was often below ZERO degrees Fahrenheit! (0 degrees C = 32 degrees F)

As you can see, the window of my bedroom is snowed in!

This stuff is NUTS! CRAZY
I've just about HAD IT UP TO HERE LITERALLY! And this is the visual to prove it!

It snowed the rest of the month usually every day, or night, and all night, or all day, sometimes with a few breaks, and sometimes some rain, then it would snow again, or we'd get an arctic blast of wind...



It's March now, and YES, we've had some snow this month also...

Tons and Tons of Snow: February Blizzard of 2015 New England

My last photo set in the entry before this one was shot on the 8th, and this was the very next day:  
February 9th, 2015.
I just recall it constantly snowing, and being so very, very dark all the time.
Not only were the windows covered in plastice, and taped, but the curtains were kept closes, whcih was even more dark, and never felt like daytime, even in mid day.

We spent time in one room, with the doors closed, to keep the heat in only the main living area of the home. The bedrooms were kept freezing cold, unless my spouse was trying desperately to keep up with his materials to begin his next semester at Boston University.


Good Deeds
The weather was so terrible that no one ever went outside, and the maintenance people also couldn't always go out to plow or shovel the snow, and the neighbors left their automobiles in piles of snow. 

I have temperature sensitivity asthma and I can't go outside in below freezing temperatures, and I'd JUST gotten past the long illness I'd had since October. So, when my neighbor, the elder lady, whom suffered many times from cancer, the cancer treatments, and then the aftermath or remission causing her to became incredibly overweight and other complications that came with that my spouse often did her work for her. He's Chinese and one must be respectful to the elderly in Chinese culture, even tho' in China people can be so mean to old people, which often seems contradictory. He also helped several of the neighbors, even the cantankerous old semi-racist ones.

The elder lady was so appreciative of my spouse helping her, and often kept trying to pay him. But, he's Chinese and feel shameful for taking money from elderly when he feels it's his duty to do this work. If he took the money, he would feel as tho' he lost face, and dishonored himself. She kept trying, however, and even tried to buy him a gift card.

There was an old Shaolin proverb I recall: 
"Sometimes to say thank you cheapens the gift."



This kind of weather, I find, makes me depressed. I hate it. So I often blogged, or stayed in bed, or found things for my daughter to do. We baked stuff, or played games. I felt very unproductive, and there was just no point in trying to search for jobs... :-/



I tried to get some shots of the back parkinglot.

It was hellish chaos.

I don't even think you can see anything....

More of Early February Blizzard of 2015

I shot these on February 8th, 2015. 

By now you can bare;y even see any cars in the parking lot.
And it just kept on coming, and coming...

New England
South Weymouth, South Shore Greater Boston (Mass)



You probably can't tell but it's snowing wildly in these photos. But, due to the lighting the camera can't see it.

Also, we had to cover all the windows with plastic to keep the drafts or, and the warm air inside as much as we could.

The windows are so old, and we have just never been able to replace these windows since we purchased this condominium due to having a child, and a very bad economy... therefore we have always constantly been stuck behind in everything, and could never catch up.... never...

I'm lucky that I even have the camera which I shot these photos.

Early February Blizzard of 2015

I shot these on February 2nd, 2015. 

The snow just kept coming, and coming.
Here you can see my first floor so-called "balcony". There became so much snow that they stopped plowing it into the bushes, and started to dump it elsewhere with industrial construction machinery. At least you can still see my wind chimes in this photo, but by the end of this storm the entire banister was covered in snow, including my wind chimes, which by now have been gobbled up by the compacted snow and ice.

Shot on wide angle macro fisheye
 
Here you can see a the view peering out of the lobby of my building during the blizzard. SO much snow is falling that the camera cannot even catch the fury of snow.
You might not be able to see it, but the walkway was tunneled out, and was almost a full yard high on even just the parts which weren't piled up snow. The areas where it's a pile of snow, and snowdrifts, are easily over 1 1/2 yards in height.

And this was when it was just getting started for February.
My daughter had almost no full school days for nearly the entire month.
