Several alert readers of my East Street Weather Blog have pointed out that this morning’s photo reminded them of a nicely salted pretzel. Here’s another version of the photo with some of the more tell-tale details cropped out. Can you figure out what it is?

I’ve really been enjoying the beautiful snow we’ve got right now (and not only for skiing!) The smoothness and openness of the world is punctuated here and there by the remains of last summer’s growth.

The red oak in our front yard still has plenty of leaves to contribute to the winter still life. They leathery copper color contrasts brilliantly with the new fallen snow.
