yesterday afternoon’s sleet turned into five inches of snow by evening. wet, sticky, and clinging to everything. today the kids made snowmen, cross country skiers left parallel grooves along fairways, and photographers raced to capture all the flat northern light. there’s a chance these crabapples will ferment a little bit and we’ll have some tipsy robins and cedar waxwings later this winter.
