Flurries

Headlights from Beech Hill, Rockport, Maine, 28 November 2012.

Headlights.

Snow flurries today. Very brief and fleeting flashes of hazy sun, but mostly just loose clouds of flakes floating slowly down. Heard Canada geese flying over when I first woke up—a nice awakening.

Had another productive work day, and finally scrambled out with dog to do a few errands before our daily hike. We took Route 17 to Beech Hill so I could check on the coots. And there they were—nowhere near the gigantic raft we had a year ago, but still.

Met Joe on the trail again, with flurries still coming down, though now blown by a moderate westerly wind.

Tonight, the sky is clear and the moon is bright on the skim of new white snow.
