The Nor’easter has arrived in the Adirondacks. The roads are rather slippery and treacherous as the heavy snow and high winds make visibility a challenge. It was really wild to ski at Mt. Van Hoevenberg on the Porter Mountain trails. The wind was gusting over 40 miles an hour, and the trees were swaying ominously. The cacophony of the wind in the trees, and those same trees creaking and squeaking, was overwhelming. It was tough to hear the person next to me speaking. It is time to hunker down with my mochaccino and watch the snow pile up.
