As you may know, Sid and I are back in New England for the holidays and as much as I was hoping to miss a snow storm, we got a biggie. After so many years of winter, I like to look at it but not necessarily be immersed in it any longer.

First snow

This is by Lake Willoughby and as the ice gets thicker and harder you will see many ice climbers tackling this section . It’s not something I’ve  ever been interested in but many seem to relish the challenge.

Burke Mountain ski area. It had been covered in clouds all day which meant it was snowy over there so when I glimpsed a break, I was able to get this shot.

A cornfield and distant winter views. I must admit I have gotten used to sunny skies daily  and the gray of winter  makes me want to settle in for a nap.

Lake Willoughby in winter. The ice is just starting to form as this is a deep lake at over 400′ in spots so it takes a bit for the water to totally cool down enough to freeze.

Vermont winter roads

Almost all secondary roads in Vermont are gravel so when winter comes they look just like this and really aren’t for the inexperienced winter driver. Having driven these roads for years I find the slipping, sliding along and going sideways, just a normal thing.

So wherever or whatever you’re doing today, I hope you’re enjoying the last Sunday of 2012!
