  • Harlan Sturm of Belchertown passes by a pair of fruit trees framing a view to the former town of Prescott at the Quabbin Reservoir in Belchertown on Monday. Sturm usually takes a 4-mile walk near the site’s visitors center but cut that short when he realized he wasn’t dressed for the unexpectedly brisk weather with a stiff wind and temperatures in the 20s. Prescott and three other towns were taken and flooded in the 1930s to create the reservoir for Boston’s drinking water. STAFF PHOTO/KEVIN GUTTING

BELCHERTOWN – Harlan Sturm of Belchertown got partway through his regular four-mile walk at the Quabbin Reservoir Visitors Center on Monday when he realized he wasn’t quite dressed for the unexpectedly brisk weather – a stiff wind and temperatures in the 20s – and decided to cut it short.
