Our final snowfall total in Windham overnight was 17-22 inches, on top of the about 6 we had on the ground already:
Uh, doesn’t look like we’re getting out the back door today. ;-)
The sky was such a stunning blue outside the house yesterday, I grabbed a photo:
Uh, it doesn’t look like that currently:
In that second one, I happened to catch a bit of a long stone wall that runs along part of our property. There are remains of rock walls like those all over the Catskills, left behind from when these mountains were once covered with farms, usually dairy farms. Also visible above the snow toward the bottom left in the photo is a bit of the barbed wire that still runs along it.
Full disclosure: those trees in that second photo are (perhaps obviously) not the same trees as the first one; that photo is not quite as sharp as the other one because I snapped that through a window (it’s freezing out there!); and it was also not quite yet fully daylight.
Still, the latest “big snow” is starting to fall… on top of the previous snow.
I also woke up with a good part of a new chapter in mind (for the sequel). I’ve already tapped tapped tapped it down furiously in outline (I hate forgetting!) on my iPad (courtesy of my bluetooth keyboard on which I’m also typing this post). Given no one is likely going anywhere today well into tomorrow, I suppose I’ve got absolutely no excuse for not getting it fully on the computer. ;-)
