Winter is hanging on

Winter hasn’t ended yet. It has been snowing off and on since early Tuesday. Driving from Plattsburgh to Saranac Lake last night, I found myself in a blinding snowstorm.

The new accumulation has amounted to only a few inches, but it was enough to inspire me go for a short ski through a pine forest in Saranac Lake on my lunch hour. The forest is at the start of the Jackrabbit Ski Trail. It’s a beautiful place after a fresh snowfall.

If you like snow, enjoy it while it lasts. The temperatures are supposed to climb into the fifties this weekend.
