Winter Finally Arrives

Even though the snow is still delayed, the cold weather has certainly set in and some classic winter activities have been in place. Ice skating on the back pond has proved excellent. The neighborhood children have joined us and we were able to get in a good game of ice hockey.

Meanwhile, the boys, inspired by Nate's week-long return from Princeton, have been doing some more backwoods logging. Wood is that magical device that stores the heat of summer for the cold of winter. We have been taking advantage of that storehouse a lot lately as the old wood stove in the basement is getting continually stoked.
