Civil War Monument on Main Street in Winter

Nantucket Winter 2015

Families Sledding in the Quaker CemetaryWinter 2015 is tougher than normal here on the island. Typically the close proximity of the Gulf Stream tends to keep us warmer than the rest of the state but not this year. After many years of fairly mild winters these back to back blizzards with hurricane force winds delivered Nantucket a series of knockout punches. It is times like these I appreciate how our isolated little community really sticks together and looks out for one another. On a blustery night such as this a cozy fire and dinner at home with family & friends is all we need. Just like the song “I get by with a little help from our friends”.
