Spring in the hills of Upstate N.Y.
The first day of Spring and the winds are howling, temperature dropping, and the air filled with snow. Ah, March.
The picture above is actually from several days ago. About an hour before guests were to arrive for a fancy dinner party, a violent ice storm descended on us, complete with thunder and lightning. The power went out and it looked like the party was doomed.
But we improvised, brought the movable feast to a friend's house in town, and all turned out quite fun (if not a bit strange).
The next day was cold with brilliant sunshine. The hills gleamed with silver-white, and every vista was amazing. I took many wonderful pictures. But I am seriously ready for Spring.
