There's nothing like the first snow of the year! When I left Boston it was sunny and in the 60's. Heading north it clouded in, then north of Portland, (Maine), I saw it - snow! After sliding down the driveway, and warming up a freezing house, Emily and I both agree 'Its great to be back!'. Emily found a tennis ball right away.
The lake is just starting to freeze over. Its so quiet and beautiful.
