Local Flavor: Cold Snap, Warm Soup

It's going to be quite cold this week. The upshot of it is that it's beautiful up here, now, with a ton of sun the past couple days and lots of white, powdery snow. I was almost waist-deep while shooting down at the river today.

My Dad is out here from New Mexico for his Vermont pilgrimage. I managed to lure him away from the pellet stove so we could get into town for snacks. He's been drawing lots with the cats for the chair by the fire.

If anyone was paying attention, they would've gotten a good chuckle watching me come back up the bank in the deep drifts.
