We’re ready!

There’s a blizzard on Okemo today. Yes, I know, it’s man made snow. It has finally gotten cold enough here to make some. Finally. The ski mountains in the area have all missed their targeted opening days and are feverishly making snow in tme for the big Thanksgiving weekend. It is strange to hear the drone of the machines and to see bright white snow on the trails and nowhere else. But they are getting ready for the onslaught they hope will come and be able to ski.
For our part, we’re ready. We’ve packed our woodshed with two cords of firewood, the snow shovels are on the porch and the snowblower is pointed out, ready for action. We know it’s coming. It’s just a matter of time. “Bring it on”, we say, knowing that once winter comes, it’s here for the long haul. But we’ll be warm beside a crackling fire, sipping on hot chocolate and reading a good book.
wood for winter

    Thanks for the comment re: pics. Our Microsoft son is redoing my efforts so stay tuned. I’m enjoying your blog. I have missed our times together so this is a welcome substitute.
