It looks like we may be in a nice little snow pattern. That is very welcome news as we are about to close out February.

At ski areas near our home in northern Vermont, about 9 inches of snow has fallen in the last 48 hours. And we're hoping for some more snowflakes through the next several days. A little at a time will add up!

Yesterday after work, the Skimeister and I went cross-country skiing. They had groomed and packed down the fresh snow. It was a thin, soft layer over frozen grass. Click-click-click was the sound our ski poles made!

This morning we earned our turns as snow fell and the wind blew. It was fun to float through some fresh snow, which had piled up over a crusty base.

It's been a challenging winter so we are thankful for the fresh flakes. Enjoy!

Mother Nature is now into her familiar spring thaw - freeze - thaw cycle. Spring skiing means you now do not want to be the first on the lift in the morning. It's often best to wait for the sun and/or…
