More snow and a memorable circuit of the ponds. High branches of the giant pines crackled under the weight of snow. We clambered around sizable fallen parts of tree that might have killed. The dogs went on undaunted. Snow flumped to the floor ahead of branches, thudding ground we had walked seconds earlier. It was sort of scary and stupid but kind of cool. Luckily we were not unlucky and did not die. Stay safe out there, people. . First pic made Guardian’s pics of the day 11/12/17. .
