Snow, Rocks and Other Kinds of Mud

So another snowstorm hits New Hampshire. Time to shovel and make cocoa and enjoy the beautiful whiteness of it all. School won't close for this one because it's already closed for a scheduled vacation.

They named this one Rocky. I don't think so. Rocky is what we have when we don't have snow.

I recently learned that the Old English name for the month roughly equivalent to our modern February was Solmonath, or mud month. I hear England can be very muddy in February. Well, Brits, I'll be thinking of you as I shovel today. We have a mud month, too, only we call it April.
