Sometimes, a blanket suits Mother Nature quite nicely.

There hasn’t been a whole lot of snow this winter in Massachusetts (although that may change this weekend!), but a handful of light dustings during the past couple of weeks have already given the scenery an elegant, wintry touch.

Since the New Year began, we’ve seen some gorgeous snow scenes on Instagram from all around the Commonwealth.

And now, for your enjoyment, here are 10 of our favorites! As always, a big thank you to everyone who generously allowed us to share.

Courtesy of the fresh snowfall, there’s plenty more where this came from.

    Love the quiet areas around subway stations. Reminds me of Atlanta in the Winter.

    We’ve had such a lovely winter, 8 1/2 feet of snow in 21 days, just #$%$@$^&$$&*&$# lovely!

      Definitely not a post that we would’ve published during February, zenobia123 🙂

      You haven’t even come close to an average winter in Syracuse NY. I still have almost 5 feet of snow in my yard. I gave up shoveling my front step and left a foot of snow there most of the winter. We stopped shoveling most of our driveway and now just walk on a trampled down section. Our snow is solid as a rock and over 4 feet high near my driveway. Driving down my street is like being in a tunnel of snow. We have over 100 inches so far but our average is 125. Most years we get 150+. A few years back we had almost 200 inch back to back winters. We are the snowiest city in the U.S. We have already passed Buffalo and their 8 feet of snow in 3 days, to be in the lead for the state’s golden snowball award. I look at these pictures and your snow is what we get in October. Show some pictures from Oswego, Fulton or the Tug Hill region of Central NY. They get double what Syracuse gets. You would be really amazed. I never missed work once and the kids all go to school. It snows 6 inches in the morning and 6 inches on the way home every single day. No sun for months.

        You’re tough Syracuse. You must love your home, I would have moved out of there long ago.

    That’s not Dedham. Close, but Turtle Pond is in Boston.

      Noted and corrected. Thank you for catching, Nit Pikkah.
