Photo of the Week – February 27, 2013

Do you remember what our fair city looks like without many inches of snow heaped upon it? Are you going winter stir crazy? Do you long for the warm embrace of spring? Fear not – Photo of the Week knows your pain and offers up a reminder that spring is coming, via this great shot of our favorite river. We’ll soon have crew races out on the Charles again, you will see green, and before you know it, summer will be here. Head on over to the Flickr pool and submit your photos of warmer times, no doubt we can all use the reminder…

Every week we select a photo from our We Love Beantown Flickr pool to highlight as the pic of the week – join and submit your favorites!

They say more snow is coming this weekend.

I say, bring on Red Sox spring training!

Tomorrow the Red Sox face off against Northeastern University’s and Boston College’s baseball teams, albeit with their relievers, down in Fort Myers, Florida.

While teammates Williams, Pesky, Doerr, and DiMaggio back in Boston may be getting a bit more than a dusting – sources are calling for “plowable” snow – think about that mid-80’s-and-sunny weather going on in Florida and the lucky ones of Red Sox Nation who are getting an early preview of this year’s team.

Bet you’re wishing you stowed away with the gear on Truck Day, huh?

Whether it’s more snow or past photos from games at “The Cathedral of Boston,” share them with us on We Love Beantown’s Flickr – we’ll help you dig out from this storm if you do!

(I’ve got some serious shovel envy after missing Nemo.)

The Blizzard of 2013 (I refuse to call it Nemo – nice marketing ploy, Weather Channel) will go down as one the top five worst snowstorms to ever hit New England. A ruler revealed a whopping 26″ in my backyard on Saturday afternoon, after the snow had finally finished falling. This photo of the week (from our very own Alex) highlights her view from a Brighton porch. Send in your blizzard photos from around town to our Flickr group, and we’ll be featuring some of the best on WLB.

Get on up, it’s blizzard time!

Scenes like this gem from one of the many blizzards in 2010 will be recreated all over our city this weekend, I’m sure.

Nemo’s coming. No, not the cute clownfish, the giant snow storm allegedly set to dump almost two feet of, in my opinion, delightful powder on Boston.

And we want you to share your Snowpocalypse, Snowmageddon and snowed-in photos on the We Love Beantown Flickr page!

Here’s a Boston snow photo shot list to get you started:

-Top of the plow piles (Bonus if you pull either a) a Titanic Rose and Jack pose or b) a Lion King Circle of Life pose)
-Picnic in the snow
-Lawn chair, stool, Caution tape, small child being used as parking spot saver
-Smallest possible walkway shoveled on sidewalk
-Sitting with an abominable snowmanesque Red Auerbach
Puppies. Duh.

What are we missing?

After a near two-year snow drought, we’re ready for it! Bring it, Nemo.
