Rough winter? Think again!
By Carol Meyer
The winter of 2015 is not easily forgotten! In all, about 100 inches of snow fell on Hingham. The result was the calling off of school for many days -- even school kids got tired of making snow angels and snow men and women in their yards -- the collapse of the roof and part of the third floor of the 1859 Lincoln Building in the heart of downtown Hingham, other collapsed roofs around town, lots of building leaks, and mounds of snow to shovel, plow, and walk through when trying to reach our front doors.
In early March 2015 Hingham Farmers Market organizers and vendors were wondering whether the snow would melt from the Bathing Beach parking lot before the planned early-May opening day -- fortunately it did!
That said, although February and March so far this year haven't been easy, here's a photo of the "farm" at the Bathing Beach -- where excess snow was stored that year -- taken by Wendell Davis in early 2015. He and his wife Linda of Baking with Joy are regular market vendors.
What stands out to you the most about that memorable -- and tough -- winter?
So looking back, this year hasn't been so bad -- at least not yet -- right?
