The bone-chilling cold in the Boston air was a bit of a shock to the system last week after a “winter” of non-freezing temperatures in London.
When we arrived, it was the first time I saw snow this season – something I had been looking to for a while.
Having grown up just outside of Buffalo, New York, Winter always meant plenty of snow, so London’s mild rainy season always seems strange to me.
I also spent Christmas in the Canary Islands which was beautiful but far from snowy.
Boston, on the other hand, does Winter the right way – white!
Wandering around the city for hours on a mild weekend, stepping over dirty piles of snow, past drain pipes wrapped in ice and evergreen wreaths still adorning the doors, we started noticing signs.
Caution: Falling Ice and Snow! Or some variation.
They were everywhere, warning people of the dangers of the thaw.
So, naturally, I started to collect pictures of the signs.
Some were pretty elegant. Others, much less so.
I just thought I’d share them here since I took photos of 12 of them.
Luckily, we dodged all of those hazardous chunks of falling ice, thanks to plenty of warning signs…
Are you used to a cold winter or a warm one? Would you like to experience the opposite?
