Snow

I woke to a beautiful white world this morning. Over night about an inch of snow fell that clung to the tree branches, outlining each one with a thick white line. It capped those last few leaves that so far have refused to succumb to the wind and the rain, reminding us that winter is just around the corner. As the sun broke through the clouds, the grass and roof tops slowly reappeared but it is cold enough that some vestiges may remain in shady places until tomorrow. Up on Okemo, preparations are underway for their opening on November 18th. They’ll commence making snow and gearing up for skiers, hoping along the way that there will be plenty of natural snow too. There is a little respite before the onslaught of out-of-towners and I’m enjoying the calm before the storm, a crackling fire in the fireplace and a nice cup of tea.

    Wow – guess there’s no stopping winter now! (Not that there was before!). So enjoy the fireplace, and a husband that thinks clearing the drive is still an adventure :-).
