It is gorgeous today in the Berkshires. The sun is out, the wind has receded, and the white is everywhere from the snow yesterday and this morning. If you look carefully at this picture you may see the footprints of my gang scurrying to the back of my yard. I shovel an area for them but they decide the right spots and invariably those spots are in the back. They come in with big chunks of snow all over their paws. Life is good.
