While some of the country is bustling with the buds of spring winter lingers in Lake Placid. It was a lovely time we spent part of last weekend. Jim and I had a nice dinner then walked back to our hotel amidst snow falling down on us, with views of mountains encasing us, and with the smell of burning wood surrounding us. We enjoyed sitting by the fire where we warmed up. Alas, spring is just around the corner, even for these parts, and warmer weather will soon find it's way. All the best and warmth to you wherever you may be.
