Ice Storm!

As many of you probably know, New England has been struggling through a very tough weekend...The storm on Thursday caused an unprecedented number of power outages across the area. Here in Dover we went almost two days without power or heat. My parents' neighborhood in Nashua still doesn't have power, but they are lucky enough to have a generator that they are sharing with some neighbors. We managed here pretty well...In a way it was nice to be without television or computers for a little while. We played a lot of cards at night, drove and walked around during the day. If it wasn't for the cold, it wouldn't have been too bad, but by yesterday morning it was about 47 degrees in the house. A couple of our friends in Dover did have power, so we sought refuge there yesterday, until our power came back in the afternoon.

I tried to make the most of this whole situation by shooting some long exposures while playing cards a couple nights ago. I also took some pictures of the Cochecho River in downtown Dover.
