Blizzard of 2016: Pretty Snow Covered Architecture

Hello again!  I hope everyone on the East Coast survived the “Blizzard of 2016”, by staying warm and cozy inside their beautiful homes.  In the Philadelphia Suburbs, we garnered around 25 inches of snow!  So, needless to say, we’re still digging our way out, here in Abington Township, PA.

I managed to get out in the middle of the storm, while it was still snowing and blowing, to take some photographs.  You may remember last winter I posted about The Most Beautiful Snow of the Year, which you can read by clicking here: http://wp.me/pEVbo-Ls

So this is a follow up post, of sorts.  Of course, this storm was much bigger than anything we had last winter. It’s hard to believe that the first and only snow storm we’ve received was such a huge event. We actually had more snow accumulation in this one event, than our snowfall average for an entire winter!  The houses in my neighborhood look so pretty all covered in all that white fluffy stuff! Anyway, I tried to take photos of some different houses this time so I hope you enjoy the beautiful architecture of Abington Township, Pennsylvania as much as I do!

These two pastel beauties are look cozy amidst the blizzard.

The monumental trees are one of the most beautiful elements of my neighborhood. Look at the gorgeous specimens towering over this large, lovely home!

Another cute cottage in my neighborhood. Isn't it just so charming with the icicles hanging off the front?

This is actually the back door of a lovely home down the block. Such a pretty back yard they have!

There are quite a few of these lovely stone homes in the neighborhood, but each is slightly different and unique in its own way.

This pretty white four-square is so elegant in its simplicity. It reminds me of farm-houses in the south! I love the red door with the red berries on the tree.

Here's a butter colored cottage with a gambrel roof. It's very charming, all nestled in the trees.

This gorgeous 3 storey stone home is just a few doors up from my little house. It looks small compared to the mammoth trees which surround it!

Thanks for joining me on my blustery walk around the block.  I love finding beauty in my every day surroundings.  Mother nature sure provided us with some gorgeous scenery this weekend–I hope you were able to enjoy it as much as I did!

Until next time, feel free to share my posts and images on Pinterest and social media. I love making new friends!

  1. Hi Kristine, The homes are lovely and of course with the snow it’s postcard beautiful. I couldn’t get out except literally right outside my front door. I had to remove the snow right up against my door from the drift. It was so deep I would have been buried in it. The view we had overlooking the park was beautiful. We have a Bar Mitzvah this weekend and they are talking about more snow. I hope we will be able to make it. The evening affair could be icy. It’s winter and you can get this weather. It’s magnificent but not when you have to drive in it. I remember your neighborhood last year, beautiful. Thanks for the pick me up. Sheila
