Cold wet stuff

Last Friday morning we woke up to discover that the first snow of the season had fallen during the night, just enough to make a white dusting on the back yard like powdered sugar on a cake.

The first snow, such as it was

On Saturday we headed up to Maine to join my folks in making cider. My aunt and uncle and some old family friends also showed up and we had a lovely afternoon of washing buckets full of apples, grinding them up, pressing the juice out, and ladling it all into bottles. Afterwards we sat down to enjoy a potluck dinner and good company.

After spending the night in Maine, we came back to Georgetown on Sunday morning. As we were heading south we drove into a rainstorm that over the course of the afternoon veered into sleet, slush, and heavy wet snow.

In other cold news, late last week I finally got our upright freezer in the basement set up and running, so we had a place to store several jugs of cider when we got home from Maine.
