Cambridge in WHITE

A foot of snow in Cambridge has thrilled me. This early morning, working on my English blog in the Cambridge room, I heard the sound of snow shoveling so close to the house. Without a thought, I grasped my room key and rushed to the street.

Wow! Terrific! So beautiful. Speechless! Thick snow everywhere. I was so right in deciding to return to Cambridge last night when I saw the falling snow on my way from Quincy to Boston to Cambridge.

But last night’s snow was nothing in comparison to what I have seen outside the house on Fulkerson Street, on Cambridge Street. No wonder, last night I was chilled to the bone.

My main camera is dead now but lucky me, I always bring an extra camera with me. I need to go to Harvard University to take some more photos because I saw my friends having great snow photos there. Last night, I took some at Harvard Square but they are not good.
