Photo of the Week: Lots of Little Snowflakes

Wow. For many, many, many little reasons, the last several days have been a definite highlight of the 2012-13 season. With daily fresh snowfall since Tuesday, as much as 30″ of fresh snowflakes have accumulated across the mountains of the Northeast, with the deepest amounts, per usual, across the northern Greens. Still, even where only …
