Yes, I said it… the snow is still here. We do have patches of earth poking through, but I think it will be a while before it melts away completely.
I took this picture when my husband and I were xc skiing. There was something about looking up into the trees that seemed so peaceful.
The days have been cold, the nights colder. -2 F was the lowest, at night. 7 F the highest, during the day. And yes, those temperatures keep us indoors, for the most part.
These pictures were taken on days when it wasn’t so cold. The top one is from Linn Run State Park in PA. I am guessing the high was 21 that day… it was also snowing. And it was also FUN! We kept warm with layers of smart wool, hats, gloves, lambs wool lined boots… we were prepared.
The lower image is from New Germany State Park after XC skiing. It’s a beautiful park, 40 minutes from our home. Lucky lucky us.
