Gorby in snow

There is no easy way to explain why J has a plastic Mikhail Gorbachev doll propped in a stand that used to hold a basketball hoop at the end of his driveway: it’s a long story, so you really had to be there. But when you set aside the question of “why,” one clear fact remains: good ol’ Gorby makes a great weather gauge. If Gorby is up to his eyeballs in snow, that means we’ve gotten another ankle-deep dose of the white stuff: another winter weekend in New England.

It was only a matter of time before I posted a fresh snow picture as my belated contribution to last week’s Photo Friday theme, White. If you want a more picturesque view of this weekend’s snow, try here or here or here.
