The setting sun illuminates a snowy landscape a day after the latest storm dumped a foot of sticky, wet snow on much of the Northeast. Two days later, because it is still below freezing, many trees still look like this.
The roads through the woods were arches of white, protective and mysterious, leaning in overhead. Many trees, unable to bear the weight, broke and brought down electrical wires. While we lost power several times for a total of twelve hours, thousands of homes are yet to be restored.Technically, it is still autumn, but it sure feels like winter! They are predicting low temperatures tonight of 4 degrees F (-15 C), more like January than November. On Sunday, a warming trend is due to come through to alter the landscape once again. To quote Mark Twain, “If you don’t like the weather in New England now, just wait a few minutes.”
