Zero Degrees


(Boardman River between Union Street and Cass Street)

This week started with the kind of cold temperature that reminds me of the value of long underwear, ski hats, and gloves. It makes for beautiful land- and waterscapes, which I enjoy en route to the office each morning.

Snow blowing the driveway continues to be enjoyable – must be something about making straight lines, manual labor, and a refreshing wakeup.

I always drive down and up the cleared driveway to test the conditions. The cold has been good as far as not having to salt, which wouldn’t melt anyway. It’s fun to see the small, white Christmas lights that Lindsey strung along the steep “Double Dogleg” portion. They are the best recent addition to our little wonderland.
