Wait, weren’t we wearing shorts and t-shirts just a few days ago? Well, put on the parka Massachusetts because snowfall is expected today! It’s time to ditch the rake and pick up the shovel, for some of us. I realize cold temps and snow in mid November isn’t exactly shocking, but adjusting from 76 degrees over the weekend to frigid temps and a wintry mix is!

According to our friends at Boston 25 News, most of today will be sunny and cold. Tonight is when we will see traces of snow around the Boston suburbs and into Worcester country. The wintry mix will extend into the Wednesday morning commute.


It’s best to remain calm in times like these. Embrace the beauty of the season. You may want to explore some of these towns in their winter glory.

The 40 Prettiest Winter Towns in America: Seven are in New England and Just a Drive Away!

Listen, who wants to get on plane during the winter? (If you do, there are some beautiful places on this list to visit.)

But if you want a winter wonderland just a drive away, these are the most picturesque holiday towns in New England, according to Country Living magazine.

I can imagine cozying up in front of a fire in any of these towns, sipping on some cocoa and doing some holiday shopping.

Two of the towns are in Massachusetts. Sure, you have to take a ferry to get to Nantucket. Who cares?

The Christmas Stroll is a bevy of Nantucket reds, money and tinsel! (Never been, but it’s on my bucket list.)

As for the sleeper hit Sandwich, sure it’s fabulous in the summer, but who knew it was a go-to destination in winter?

Truth be told, all of the Cape is amazing during the colder months. But be warned, lots of places are closed for the season. If you’re looking for quiet, though, it’s the place to be.

Check out these perfect New England winter towns where you can cozy up with the ones you love!
