And tomorrow it will be washed away

The storm this weekend turned the Lower Cape into a winter wonderland

  The small pond across Quanset Road from Quanset Pond in South Orleans had two hungry swans aswimming on Saturday afternoon.

12-20-08-03_400I must apologize to the rest of you because here on Pleasant Bay in East Harwich we had just a dusting of snow Friday night, followed by occasional light ocean effect snow on Saturday.

The winds, however, were held at a steady 45mph for several hours.

I think that blew our snow over into Brewster and beautiful, downtown Harwich.

Our driveway was black this morning, and we didn't touch our snow shovels.

But a half mile north or south and the scene was far different. So I took a short drive to South Orleans for this photos of Quanset Pond and the northwest head of Pleasant Bay.

On the right is a lone shallop boat in Quanset Pond, and below a beach house almost at the South Orleans-Harwich town line is covered with snow on its east and north facing sides.
