This is one of the many private roads near the Saco River. I think there is one farmhouse at the end. I know in the summer there are lots of cows in fields nearby. This back road will look a lot different by this evening. We've got about 10 inches on the way. Believe in old wives' tales? One I've heard is a winter with little snow means lots of sickness abounds. Let it snow. let it snow. Let it snow!
Nay! Nay! No more snow!!ReplyDelete
It's a beautiful path!ReplyDelete
The snow brings adorable winter sceneries!
If the old wives' tale is true, we should be very healthy! We have about a foot of snow and it's still coming down!ReplyDelete
We too, should be very healthy around here. 10 inches?!! Holy Cow!ReplyDelete
Our snow has gone now - given way to milder temperatures but lots of rain and wind making it feel cold - and now we seem to be getting more people catching flu - that's partially because they stayed at home when it snowed but are now going out to the shops.ReplyDelete
This photo reminds me of that old poem "over the river and through the woods". My mother used to say when we were growing up in Illinois that a hard freeze is necessary to kill off the germs. She said if there is no hard freeze there will be a lot more sickness.ReplyDelete
May be that the reflection from snow and ice increases the level of UV radiation...ReplyDelete
Love the road, love the snow, and bring on more--until we have to travel in it. Stay healthy.ReplyDelete
What a great place for a long quite walk.ReplyDelete
I guess I don't have many old wives around to tell me tales b/c I have never heard that one before. In any case, this country road looks beautiful layered in snow.ReplyDelete
I was reading about the white stuff heading your way. Hopefully, some old wives told tales that had some truth to them. Otherwise, you may be stuck in more than one snowbank, if you get my drift!ReplyDelete
Good luck. This is a gorgeous shot. It would be interesting to see the road after your storm passes (if it does!)...
I think it's just the cold that beats germs, no? We're in full flu and tummy bug epidemics here, but then again it's mild and rainy all the time now. 10 in., eh? NICE! I'd love to take a walk there as it is!ReplyDelete
I think there is something to that old wives tale. Also, snow and ice are important to our identity and culture. Reduction of ice and snow damages our ecosystems. Some scientists say that the absence of snow may increase global warming. Now you might not like snow but the benefits seem to outweigh the "No- Snowers" call to make it go away. Lovely snow filled country road -- barbaraReplyDelete
a path for a walkReplyDelete
I'd never heard that wives tale either. It's pretty even before the snow upgrade that's forecast.ReplyDelete
10 inches on the way?? I'm envious!
What a beautiful snowy path... glad you are taking on the snow so we in the South can be healthy.ReplyDelete
Hope you can take a nice walk along this path.
I don't know many old wives' tales. The path looks inviting in the snow.ReplyDelete
