I wanted to post a photo from the archive and started going back through the past few months. Despite the recent warm Spring weather, it felt way too early for an image of snow.

I’m pretty sure this was an unseasonable warm Winter day* and I recall taking a photo of the Marblehead Savings Bank menorah a half hour earlier.
