Jan 4: neighbor's woodpile, morning light, 1 degree Fahrenheit

The snow is late this year; very late.

We got record snow in October; the heaviest snowfall on record, that early. We lost power for days. But that melted away.

Now, it's January. The State of NH maintains thousands of miles of snowmobile trails; they normally open for travel Dec 1. This year, many are still closed. Ski areas are hurting; until very recently, it hasn't been consistently cold enough even for artificial snow-making.

But nah, this "climate change" stuff is all a liberal plot, right? Sigh.
