For forty-seven days the ground has been snow-covered and now the wind has turned to the north, the temperatures have dropped and more snow has fallen. The very slow thaw of the last two weeks has ended with the snow pack much reduced but several inches of complete cover still remained when the snow started again. And another six inches or so has fallen over the last few days with more forecast this week. In the twenty years I have lived here never before has snow stayed so long. This is a real winter. I will be hauling supplied up on a sledge for many days yet. And keeping fit cutting firewood.
