Al and Cal Homes and Community: Winter in MA Just West of Boston

Winter in MA Just West of Boston

Winter in MA Just West of Boston

It sure is pretty looking out my window this morning to see the snow cover still white and on everything!    I look out at my neighbors home knowing that they are enjoying the warm Florida sun, and knowing that they no longer have to  deal with ice on the driveway and stairs, or warming up the car before getting off and running.    They don't have to see if the snow pants still fit or make sure they have gloves available that match.   Winter on the Charles Painting by Frances Palmieri

I wonder, is the snow bird life for me?   Why don't we all follow suit and head to the warmer, more gentler climate?  

But, as soon as I walk out of the house, properly dressed, the cold crisp air hits me and I know why living here just west of Boston is for me and so many others.    The winter air feels perfect.   It is easy to breath.    Looking at the birds fly from tree to tree, contrasted by the white snow is a beautiful sight.   I would miss that.

Embracing the season makes sense even though the down hill slopes no longer call my name and the thought of falling on pond ice while zipping around on skates at my age seems foolish. 

But, the idea of putting on a pair of cross country skis or getting the kayak out for a trip on the river and enjoying the natural quiet of winter is very much tugging at me.    Coming home to hang out in front of a warm fire is the end of a perfect day.       

Living just west of Boston in winter is great place to be.   We have all the winter activities that one can imagine right here at our fingertips or if we want more of a challenge, it can be north within just a couple of hours ride.   If we want more than the natural quiet found right here in our own neighborhoods, we can take a winters walk or shop the cities of Boston, Providence or Worcester in under a hour. 

And, best of all.   You can't get bored!   In just over two months, we will turning the corner to spring!

Hi Cal,

You have the correct mindset for living with winter weather. I personally have lived here since 1980 and you get use to not having to worry about snow, ice, etc. I use to like winter sports but these days when its winter here I can still grill steaks in a pair of shorts, light coat and flip flops and enjoy the cooler air. Summers are very rough. I will suggest your blog.

You make it sound so inviting Carol Ann.  I was commenting to my husband on the drive home today from visiting family (we had snow) that I miss having a winter season.

Carol Ann, Happy New Year to you!  If you ever decide to become a snow bird, even for a month or a few weeks, let me know.  The change of seasons is nice, I am still figuring out a way to "have it all"!

Carol Ann, though I am a warm weather lover, I miss the sight of white snow covering everything around - it's quite a peaceful sight.  Happy New Year and my best wishes for much happiness, success and good health through 2013.
