A good day for a first snow. It is, after all, the shortest day of the year and the first day of Winter. It may well be around for a white Christmas--it depends upon the Swans. I still feel that ice on the lake is reliably predicted by the presence of the Mute Swans in the water at Big Island. So far they have just done a fly by. I'll keep you "posted."
The bell in the foreground, by the way, was used to respond to the bell on the shore--letting visitors know that we heard them--and that we would send a boat over. Amazing the changes that cell phones have made to our daily lives--also amazing how quickly this all happened.
