It's snowing in Ocean City!

 I may be one of those crazy people - I love snow! I love to be inside a nice warm house, drinking a hot cup of tea with the fireplace on and watch the snow fall. I don't even mind shoveling - well, not as much as many people do   I used to live in northern New Jersey where we got more snow than I see now in Ocean City. That does make a big difference. In Ocean City we do not get a lot of snow. The picture above is from one of our bigger snow storms last March. Doesn't it look beautiful to see the snow on the beach and dunes?  Here's a picture I love where you can see the ocean and the snow. BTW - these pictures were both taken by Sun Rise Cafe in Ocean City sunrisecafeoc.com, a great place to eat!

It is so unusual to see the ocean and snow right next to each other. Whenever I have guests during a snow storm, I tell them they have to go up to the boardwalk and look at the beach. You can see exactly how far the ocean came up on the beach. Let's face it - it's not what you think of when you think about Ocean City!
The other nice thing about snow in Ocean City is that it does not last for a long time. It snows, you go out, take pictures, do some shoveling and then sit inside and enjoy it. A couple of days later it is usually gone - before it starts to get all dirty and ugly. It seems as though you have it just long enough to enjoy it, but not too long where you get to the point of being tired of it. So I hope I have not jinxed myself. There is a possibility of a huge snowstorm in the Ocean City area starting Friday night. Let's see - hot tea? check, bread? check,milk? check, toilet paper? check. OK, let the snow begin!
