New Jersey weather extremes: At least Nemo was kinder than Sandy

LIFE IN NEW JERSEY: Well after a lot of worrying and a bit of panic, snow storm ‘Nemo’ didn’t hurt New Jersey much at all, compared to Hurricane Sandy. The snow was enough to make my home town look beautiful, at least for a while. Here are some photos from Montclair, New Jersey from last week’s snow event!

These scenes even make my photography look good! Oh how I wish this season would last a bit longer….

  1. You live in a beautiful neighbourhood – the snow on the trees is just gorgeous. When we lived in the Middle East the one thing I truly missed were large deciduous trees. For me, big old trees=home 🙂

    • Thanks Judy:) Montclair is truly a beautiful town. Picking a good place was one thing we got right. The snow does make the scene look more beautiful than it does normally but the trees are gorgeous here. Better than at home really!
