Enjoying the Snow


Greenhouse, new fence and hemlock in the first snow of the season, Sourlands, December 5, 2009
What vegetables will survive the temperature drop? Hopefully, the white flies and aphids will not.

Philadelphia, Winter 2002:

Our landlords had been living in the United States for just a couple years. We watched them from our bedroom window on the third floor. Getinet in his black leather jacket, and Tigist, an Ethiopian beauty, were laughing on the sidewalk. They drove away in their small sedan.

The snow was falling quickly - already a foot, and wind sculpted drifts. They returned not long after and walked up the steps still laughing.
