Today at Sawbill I’m especially noticing the long shadows and thumping of ice being made

12/12/17 – As we approach the darkest days of the year its nice to step back and notice the long shadows and distinct thumping sound of ice forming on the lake. Today the sun will be above the horizon for only 8 of 24 hours. These shorter days give us a very good excuse to hunker down with a hot beverage, good book, and maybe some knitting. Happy winter everyone!


On this 12th day of the 12th month I measured 12 inches of ice on the south end of Sawbill lake just before noon. Twilight zone stuff right there.
