Invariably in January in northern Vermont we get some bone chilling, finger numbing, hurts to breath days. Just as surely, I hear Grampa Hue’s voice saying “as the days begin to lengthen, the cold begins to strengthen”.
This has been one of the first days of sunshine in a long time – so no matter what the thermometer says (-4 the last time I looked), the day just doesn’t seem so bad!
I stopped to watch an otter play on the ice this morning on the Missisquoi River then had to stop and take a picture of the railroad crossing.
Now for another cup of coffee sweetened with maple syrup and some birdwatching – from inside the house!
