While UD’s webmistress visits…

… hyperurbanized Tokyo, UD wakes up, just now, to the silent hills above Brattleboro.

The hills are cold blue waves under the hot pinks and oranges of the sunrise, and UD stands at her bedroom window, her feet cold on the wide plank floor, taking in the scene.

Regular readers know UD dislikes the cold; and she certainly dislikes the iciness still underfoot here after the blizzard. But who could dislike the silence of hills in snow?

They’re whitening now, under slate clouds fringed with white.

A good place to see in the year.

    My brother has a “cottage” (it sleeps at least 10 relatives on any given night, counting floors and couches) just on the other side of the VT/NH state line. Unfortunately, it’s only a summer cottage, and I’ve always wondered what it looked like in the winter. Any chance you could post some pictures?

    By way of compensation, here’s a video of impressively stupid driving from my hometown during our current blizzard (started yesterday in CO): http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=1587979457262

    Eric: Posting pictures would be complicated. Only one of the two houses here has internet connection; there’s no cell phone connection anywhere…
