Lagrangeville, NY - A Fairy Tale Snow

The Homestead
No surprise here - it's still cold! However, if were had to have snow, at least it was beautiful. The snow was light as a feather and fell with no wind at all. Given those conditions, it floated onto every branch, outlining all the trees in a blanket of white.

Every branch was covered
The morning dawned with a brilliant sun which gave an otherworldly aura to the winter scene. It was cold at first but it "warmed up" to the mid-'20s later. Ann, as an artist, wanted immediately to go outside and take photos so we toured the area, it was beautiful.

On tour with Ann to find inspirations for her pastels
Despite all this natural beauty, I remain unconvinced that the best strategy in winter is to remain up north to participate in the wonders of nature in the colder months. With that in mind, we are now aiming to return to Titusville and reasonable temperatures by 2/14 or thereabouts, depending upon the weather. To say that we are looking forward to warmer weather is an understatement. If you're in the area, drop by, we'd love to see you.

Looks like Winter Wonderland for sure. It's been a little cool in Florida this week in the 50's and 60's. Walked by Fleetwing last week and all looks good. We had strong winds at the marina and it changes the water dynamics. Safe travels. We'll stop by when you get down. We want to check out the bionic man.

Safe travels. The cold up here is so tough. As you know, we expect to go back into the upper 40's by Monday. Hard for your body to adjust to those kind of temperature swings. Hope you get to at least visit the Keys this year. Be well.
Fair winds & Smooth sailing,
Elaine & Lawrence C.L.O.D.
