Happy New Year!

Welcome to

"At Home in the Huddle 2012"

It's January first,

and what an unusual New Year's Day this is -

at 2:00 in the afternoon the temperature is fifty degrees!

The sun has shone all morning.

The only Christmas Tree left in the Park is that in the Bandstand .......

........ and several, so brightly decorated last week, now wait by the side of the road for Big Orange to take them away.

Out in the countryside, snomobile trails - all marked - stand bare.


There's not a bit of snow up in Hanover .........

............ and the ice that was on the little pond at the foot of Grant Hill on Friday, when I took this picture, is all gone but the Mallards are still there.

Just a bit of ice left at the "Caves" in Forge Hollow.

All in all, it's been a very nice "Spring" day!

That condition is about to come to a screeching halt, however, as we progress backward, as it were, into ..........


The WKTV forecast: "2012 starts off quiet with mostly cloudy skies. Scattered showers arrived late in the day with highs in the mid 40s.

Winter returns on Monday with colder weather and lake effect snow across the North Country. Our coldest weather of the season arrives on Tuesday with highs in the teens and lows below zero."


While most of us have been marking New Year's Day in special ways, there are a few who have an additional reason to celebrate:






Garbage collection is on Tuesday.

There is NO "Big Trash" collection this month.


Have a great day and a great year, everyone!
