Cape May Snow, take 2

Cape May, NJ - Shrink wrapped parking meters looked like blue punctuation points this AM in the snow.

Now we're talking winter!

Frigid temps. A half decent snowfall that doesn't disappear in an hour. And even a snow plow sighting on Perry St.

It was our second snowfall in just over two weeks, but this one stuck around for a while.

While city workers were busy shoveling snow from Rotary Park, Val Sperlak needed just a broom to polish off the walkway by Wildberries.

It was a fine, powdery snow, very pretty indeed. If you were up early, you got to watch the storm clouds over the Cove. Awesome.

And, baby it was COLD outside.

The cold, cold arctic air combined with the snow turned Cape May Harbor into an ice rink.

Talk about being frozen in place.

Even the Cape May Canal had a mini iceberg blocking the channel. How often does that happen?

That's what the locals at Bella Vida Cafe this morning were trying to figure out.

The talk turned to blizzards -the big ones - like the Blizzard of 1979, when snowbanks turned the Garden State Parkway into a tunnel.

Or the more recent white out in 2003 that stranded tourists and brought the town to a standstill.

Certainly no one was stranded in this latest snow. But it sure was pretty to look at.
