It would be nice, but I am not counting on it…despite about five inches of packed snow on the ground.  A few nights ago it was crystal clear (with a full moon, absolutely gorgeous down in the woods) and dropping to near zero with daytime highs of about 12.  Tonight, it is above freezing and mild, tomorrow…warmer.  It might rain this weekend.  Such is southern New England.  The perfect climate for cynics and pessimists and those afflicted with the half-empty glass syndrome.
