Rain Turning to Snow
After three days and four inches of rain, the snow is finally on its way! This view of Long Mountain is about a mile north of the house, and the layer of fog dwarfs the farmhouse and the cows that graze the fields around it. The rain will begin turning to snow this afternoon, and when I awake tomorrow morning, my walk should be through a winter wonderland. Wish me luck!
The photo below was made looking toward the earthen dam that created Otter Pond years ago. The American Beech tree is famous for holding onto its fall leaves through the winter. The pond is as full as I’ve ever seen it, and I hope this dam is a good one.
