Well, winter is around to stay for at least the next 6 weeks according to the groundhog and weather report. Eight inches of fresh powder arrived on Tuesday night into Wednesday evening to create a winter wonderland in Cooperstown. It can be exhausting to shovel but it always looks so beautiful on a day like today with a crisp blue sky and sunshine. The perennials should be magnificent come this spring and summer with the great snow pack for insulation that they require. Once again, mother nature is in charge! Stay well and warm.
