So Maude called this morning

Maude is an old friend of mine who lives near the entrance to Maudslay State Park in Newburyport, MA.

She called early this morning, while I was shoveling my car out and talking with neighbors.
A perfect fluffy six inches of snow had fallen overnight and  Maude wanted to know when I would be coming by with my skis.

I was there within a half-hour and I got to enjoy a perfectly wonderful hour of being alive and well in New England.   I realized once again that the word AWESOME is so often overused (especially by me!)  It should be reserved for places like Maudslay on a peaceful December morning after a fresh snow.
