One good thing about the storm is that it will prolong the maple syrup season, since there won't be any fire danger for a while (I was getting a bit worried at how fast it was melting off last week, revealing all that long dead grass on the hillside.) I'm not up to going out to do any photography in this wind -- but here is one of my favorite photos from a previous storm in 2007. I call it, appropriately, "Dawn after the Storm":
And here is essentially the same view in early spring that same year -- a sight I'm definitely looking forward to SOON! As for why we are getting so much snow lately, see my previous blog post, "If the earth is warming up, why are we getting so much snow?"
